CONTROL OF WILD OAT AND JOINTED GOATGRASS ON TEXAS ROADSIDES. INTERIM REPORT
Wild oat (Avena fatua L.) and jointed goatgrass (Triticum cylindricum(Host) Ces.) plants growing along roadsides are perceived as a seed reservoir for infesting adjacent wheat fields. Treatments were sought for these grassy weeds growing on roadsides to reinforce cleanup programs initiated by wheat farmers. Spring mowing and pre-emergence treatments were unsatisfactory for controlling wild oat and jointed goatgrass. However, post-emergence treatment with 1 1/2 lbs ai/A of glyphosate after all plants emerged and before heading completely controlled these weeds without damaging the permanent turf. Research is continuing with lower rates of glyphosate and comparison of alternative materials with glyphosate as standard.
