AbstractEvaluates the use of the herbicides imazapyr and fluridone in controlling the invasive Panicum repens in Lake Okeechobee, Florida. A single aerial treatment of imazapyr controlled P. repens for more than one year. Combining imazapyr with fluridone did not increase control. When plant biomass was reduced by fire prior to herbicide treatment, control lasted more than two years and native species, including Pontederia cordata, became the dominant species. The herbicide did not result in long-term control of P. repens.
