Benzoylprop Ethyl and Its Analogue for the Control of Wild Oat in Wheat

  • K. J. Kirkland (a1) and R. Ashford (a1)

Abstract

Benzoylprop ethyl [Ethyl N-benzoyl-N (3,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-amino-propionate] and WL 29761 [methyl-N-benzoyl-N-(3-chloro-4-fluorophenyl)-2-amino-propionate] were applied to wild oat (Avena fatua L.) in wheat (Triticum aestivum L. ‘Manitou’) to study the yield benefits occurring and the efficacy of the compounds on wild oat. Even though removal of the wild oat was at the later growth stages, benzoylprop ethyl and WL 29761 did produce significant yield increases at both rates tested. Efficacy on wild oat ranged from mediocre to virtually complete control. Crop tolerance was satisfactory throughout the study.
