EVALUATION OF SOIL-APPLIED HERBICIDES FOR VEGTATION CONTROL

TWENTY-SEVEN HERBICIDE FORMULATIONS WERE EVALUATED FOR THEIR ABILITY TO PROVIDE TOTAL VEGETATION CONTROL. OBSERVATIONAL RATINGS OF TEST PLOTS DURING THE INITIAL 5-YEAR STUDY INDICATED THAT A TRIAZINE HERBICIDE, A SUBSTITUTED AREA COMPOUND, AND A URACIL COMPOUND WERE MOST EFFECTIVE IN CONTROLLING ALL PLANT GROWTH. A TABLE AND A GRAPHIC FIGURE SUMMARIZING THE RESULTS OF THE OVER-ALL PERFORMANCE OF EACH HERBICIDE AT EACH RATE OF APPLICATION ARE INCLUDED. DATA OBTAINED INDICATE LITTLE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN HERBICIDAL PERFORMANCE BETWEEN AQUEOUS AND DRY APPLICATIONS. A LIMITED TEST SHOWED THAT A DRY APPLICATION OF PELLETED ATRAZINE ON GRAVEL AGGREGATE WAS AS EFFECTIVE AS THE AQUEOUS TREATMENT. /AUTHOR/
