Abstract/Contents:1981 test to determine the optimum rate and time of application of linuron to result in nimblewill control with the least injury to Kentucky bluegrass. Comparable tests were also conducted in 1981 on nimblewill infested pasture turf. A mature nimblewill-Kentucky bluegrass turf maintained at a mowing height of 2 inches was chosen for this study. Individual plots measured 6' x 10' with four replications. Treatments were applied using a portable CO2 type sprayer on August 10, August 24, September 8, and October 8, 1981. A table provides application rates and visual estimates of nimblewill and bluegrass phytotoxicity on 8/21, 9/8, 9/23, and 10/27/81. Final control data will be collected in 1982 after early summer recovery of dormant nimblewill. On 10/27, Linuron applied on 8/10 and 8/24 (1 lb/ac each date) provides 100% injury to nimblewill with 5% or less injury to Kentucky bluegrass.
