Field experiments were conducted in 1997 and 1998 near Rossville in northeast Kansas to evaluate control of imazethapyr-resistant common sunflower with selected herbicides in corn and soybean. In soybean, common sunflower control was unacceptable with imazethapyr, chlorimuron, CGA-277476, and cloransulam applied alone. Lactofen or acifluorfen applied with these herbicides slightly improved control, whereas glyphosate applied with them controlled more than 97% of common sunflower. All herbicides reduced common sunflower populations in the corn. The greatest reductions occurred when atrazine was applied with dicamba, 2,4-D, RPA 201772, or CGA-152005 plus primisulfuron. These herbicide combinations also stunted common sunflower that survived treatment. Several herbicide alternatives are available to control imazethapyr-resistant common sunflower in corn. However, glyphosate was the only herbicide that gave adequate control in soybean.
