Combined Effect of Trifluralin and MSMA on Johnsongrass Control in Cotton

  • Y. Kleifeld (a1)


Preplanting application of α,α,α-trifluoro-2,6-dinitro-N,N-dipropyl-p-toluidine (trifluralin), reduced the number of monosodium methanearsonate (MSMA) applications needed for the control of johnsongrass (Sorghum halepense (L.) Pers.). The combined effect enabled weed control to be completed before cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) began to bloom, and hence without causing damage to the crop.
