Experiments were conducted to evaluate imazaquin and selected herbicides for POST control of wild garlic. At the same dosages, imazaquin applied in late November/early December (late fall) controlled wild garlic better than when applied in early March (late winter) when assessed in May. Imazaquin provided control equivalent to 1120 g ae ha–1 2,4-D plus imazaquin. Imazapyr, imazamethabenz, or imazethapyr at 280, 1120, or 560 g ai ha–1, respectively, provided control equivalent to 560 g ai ha–1 imazaquin. Thifensulfuron at 70 g ai ha–1 provided better control applied in late winter (85%) than late fall (45%). All herbicides consistently provided better control than 2,4-D plus mecoprop plus dicamba, except thifensulfuron applied in late fall, at the final evaluation. Common bermudagrass growth in early spring was delayed 2 mo by ≥ 560 g ha–1 imazaquin, 70 g ha–1 thifensulfuron, imazethapyr, and imazapyr or 2,4-D plus mecoprop plus dicamba applied in late winter. Imazamethabenz did not delay common bermudagrass growth. Late fall applications of 1120 g ha–1 imazaquin did not delay growth while ≥ 560 g ha–1 imazethapyr delayed common bermudagrass growth through April.
