Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted at the Grassland Research Institute "to compare paraquat with dalapon as a means of destroying the grasses in an old pasture before oversowing." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the sward was first treated with 2, 4-D at 1 lb. a.e. per acre in June 1959 to control broadleaved weeds, and plots were treated with dalapon or paraquat in the spring of 1960. " Reports the advantages shown by the parauqat: "(1) No residual soil toxicity. Oversowing practicable soon after spraying. The dying grass covers the seed, reducing the need for cultivation, (2) Quick uptake by the plant. Hence results are not greatly affected by rain falling soon after application of the chemical, (3) Rapid action, (4) Toxic at low concentration of active ingredient, (5) Selectivity among grass species, the order of which is of practical significance."
