Abstract/Contents:"Clove oil and middle-length fatty acids (MLFAs) are compounds known to have nonselective herbicidal activity. These compounds are naturally occurring and breakdown quickly in the environment, making them environmentally safe (Tworkoski 2002). These compounds have potential as alternative weed control agents to compete with synthetic herbicides, but it is limited in use to non-selective weed control. Little research utilizing clove oil and MLFAs has been conducted in turfgrass. Since these compounds function as nonselective herbicides, research was conducted to evaluate weed control efficacy in a dormant turfgrass setting using bermudagrass (Tifway Cynodon transvaalensis Burtt-Davy x C. dactylon (L.) Pers)."
