Abstract/Contents:"Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is grown in millions of acres in the U.S. Approximately 1-2 million acres are grown in the far western states, Arizona and California. The alfalfa hay in this area is almost always grown under irrigation. The alfalfa varieties (often nondormant or semi-dormant types) are high yielding especially under abundant moisture conditions and year-round growing season. Yields in Arizona and Southern California, for instance, are commonly one ton/acre per cutting. There are approximately 8-12 cuttings per year and stands are maintained for three to four years. Weed pressure is often the reason for renovating the alfalfa crop. Even in areas where disease or insect pressures have weakened or thinned the crop, it is the resulting weed pressure that necessitates renovation. BWC market development representatives and university researchers in the far western states have conducted numerous sethoxydim/alfalfa trials in 1982-1984. In general, these tests were rate studies testing sethoxydim (2-[1-(ethoxyimino)butyl]-5-[2-(ethylthio)propyl] -3-hydroxy-2-cyclohexen-1-one) at .1, .2, .3, .4, .5, # AI/AC. Some of these tests also compared total spray volumes of 5.10 and 20 GPA. Grasses tested include yellow foxtail (Setasria lutescens), wild oat (Avena fatua), Italian rye (Lolium multiflorom), winter wheat, sandbur (Cenchurs incertus), and bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon)."
