Abstract/Contents:"Chinese silvergrass is a tall non-native bunchgrass that is widespread in the eastern and southern parts of the United States. Miscanthus sinensis has become established along roadsides in the eastern regions of Kentucky. These infestations are a concern due to line of sight issues, potential for fire, and mowing costs. Selective control of roadside weeds is a goal that can be attained by choice of herbicides, timing of application, and in combination with mowing. This study evaluated the timing of herbicide application and sequential herbicide applications on mowed and unmowed Chinese silvergrass stands. The pair of trials were established in 2010 on a roadside in eastern Kentucky. The following products (active ingredients) were evaluated: Arsenal (imazapyr), Roundup Pro (glyphosate), Envoy (clethodim), and Fusion (fluazifop + fenoxaprop). The efficacy of Roundup Pro and Roundup + Arsenal treatments applied once in summer or fall (flowering) and sequentially in summer and fall were evaluated. Envoy and Fusion treatments applied once or twice (4 weeks after first treatment) were also evaluated. In the unmowed trial, in late spring 2011, all the treatments with Roundup alone and in combination with Arsenal provided at least 90% control while the twice applied Fusion and Envoy treatments had 47 to 58% control. In the mowed trial, one year after first application, the twice and fall applied treatments with Roundup alone and in combination with Arsenal provided >90% control while the twice applied Fusion and Envoy treatments had 40 to 60% control."
