Tall Morningglory Germination Response to Herbicides and Temperature

  • A. W. Cole (a1) and G. E. Coats (a1)


Tall morningglory [Ipomoea purpurea (L.) Roth] seeds were germinated at various temperatures and dry weight conversion measured at 24, 48, 72, 96, and 120 hr. Germination and dry weight conversion were slower at the lower temperatures although both occurred. Tall morningglory could germinate and become established over a wide range of temperatures. Some herbicides were effective in reducing germination, and dry weight conversion was reduced most with the dithiocarbamates followed in sequence by the amides, benzoic acids, uracils, dinitroanilines, phthalamic acids, triazines, and ureas.
