Control of Palmer Amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) in Peanut (Arachis hypogaea) with Postemergence Herbicides

  • W. James Grichar (a1)


Seven postemergence (POST) herbicides were evaluated alone and in various mixtures for Palmer amaranth control in peanut from 1992 through 1994. AC 263,222 at rates as low as 0.04 kg/ha controlled ≥ 95% Palmer amaranth. Imazethapyr at rates of 0.05 to 0.07 kg/ha controlled ≥ 90% Palmer amaranth in 2 of 3 yr. Acifluorfen alone or in combination with bentazon or 2,4-DB and lactofen alone controlled > 90% Palmer amaranth in 2 of 3 yr. Bentazon or pyridate failed to provide adequate control (≤ 60%), while 2,4-DB provided good control (80%) in only 1 of 3 yr.
