Abstract/Contents:"Australian saltbush was introduced into California as a cattle forage and erosion control agent. It tolerates soils high in salt concentrations and is well adapted to climatic conditions found in the low desert of Southern California. Traditional methods of control consisting of hand hoeing, close mowing ,and string trimmer removal conducted by landscaping professionals have proven to be ineffective and labor intensive. Glyphosate and 2,4,D spray treatments made by pest control professionals have also been ineffective. Field studies were conducted at a golf course at El Centro, CA in 1997 to compare herbicides for control of Australian saltbush in turf. Herbicides tested were: metribuzin, bentazon, dithiopyr, halosulfuron-methyl, pelargonic acid, glufosinate, and acetic acid. These products are all available to landscape professionals in California that would minimize the risk exposure to themselves and possible impacts upon the environment. We determined that foliar applied metribuzin plus nonionic surfactant at 0.25 lb/A + 0.5% provided excellent control of Australian saltbrush with minimal phytotoxic effects to bermudagrass turf and woody ornamentals."
