The influence of chlorsulfuron {2-chloro-N-[[(4-methoxy-6-methyl-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino] carbonyl] benzenesulfonamide} on control of wild oat (Avena fatua L. ♯3 AVEFA) when mixed in the spray tank with three herbicides was tested in greenhouse and in field trials at Lacombe and Scott, Canada, during 1981 and 1982. In field experiments, chlorsulfuron mixed with diclofop {2-[4-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenoxy]propanoic acid} caused a 4 to 35% reduction in control of wild oat. Mixtures of chlorsulfuron with difenzoquat (1,2-dimethyl-3,5-diphenyl-1H-pyrazolium) caused a 0 to 19% reduction and mixtures with flamprop {N-benzoyl-N-(3-chloro-4-fluorophenyl)-DL-alanine} a 2 to 30% reduction in control of wild oat. Addition of chlorsulfuron to the wild oat herbicides under greenhouse conditions also resulted in losses in control of wild oat. Increasing the rate of the wild oat herbicide in the mixture tended to overcome these losses.
