Abstract/Contents:"Roadside managers have dual objectives to control weeds and reduce tall vegetation that affect visibility, aesthetics, and safety on roadways. These objectives are often met by mowing at least once, but sometimes multiple mowings are required. Mowing is costly and increases exposure of crews on roadsides to traffic hazards. However, grass height management is required because overgrown vegetation can limit motorist visibility and be hazardous. Herbicide applications containing sulfometuron-methyl, imazapic, chlorsulfron, and metsulfuron-methyl have been used as plant growth regulators to suppress grass growth and seed head development on many cool- and warm-season grasses found on roadside rights-of-way. Aminopyralid + metsulfuron (Opensight¬ģ) is a new herbicide product from Dow AgroSciences for control of weeds and certain woody plants, including invasive and noxious weeds, on non-cropland areas including roadsides, electric utility and communication transmission lines, pipelines, railroads, non-irrigation ditch banks, natural areas, and grazed areas in and around these sites. Trials were established in 2010 in Alabama, Florida, Missouri, Mississippi and North Carolina to compare performance of Opensight to commercial standards for weed control, grass height and grass seed head suppression. Opensight and mixtures with Opensight provided equal or better efficacy when compared to imazapic on weeds such as poison hemlock (Conium maculatum), curly dock (Rumex crispus), narrow-leaf plantain (Plantago lanceolata), hop clover (Trifolium aureum) and others. In addition to weed control, Opensight also reduced height and suppressed seed heads of tall fescue (Schedonorus phoenix) and bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum). Tall fescue growth suppression was equivalent with Opensight and imazapic, but Opensight suppression of bahiagrass was somewhat less than that provided by imazapic, but was commercially acceptable. Imazapic-induced injury and thinning of bahiagrass stands and poor weed control tended to allow tall growing weeds to flourish and negate the effect of this treatment to reduce mowing frequency. When the predominant grass is bahiagrass or tall fescue, Opensight provides weed control, grass height and seed head suppression without the need for adding imazapic. Use of Opensight will result in cost savings while delivering broad spectrum weed control and grass suppression."
