Abstract/Contents:"Brominal (octanoic acid ester of bromoxynil) is a postemergence herbicide which has recently recieved label clearance for broadleaf weed control in seedling grasses grown for turf and seed production. Brominal, unlike phenoxy compounds, will control many annual broadleaf weeds and grasses soon after they emerge without injuring young seedling grasses. Bromoxynil rates of ⅜ to ½ lb.acre usually are adequate to control most susceptible broadleaf weeds if applied when weeds are small and in the 3 to 4 leaf stage. As weeds become larger, susceptibility to the herbicide decreases. Brominal appears to be taken up rather quickly by the foliage. Rainfall or overhead irrigation soon after application does not appear to reduce its activity. In fact, increased activity has been observed in several cases where rain fell within an hour after application. Brominal is effective under a wide range of temperatures. The weed kill may be slower under cooler temperatures, but the overall control under warm and cool temperatures is fairly equal. Broadleaf weeds can become a serious problem in newly seeded turf because they are usually more aggressive than the desirable grass species. The high levels of soil nutrients and moisture needed for turf establishment make weeds flourish. Early elimination of these weeds will aid in establishing a vigorous, attractive turf which can compete with any later germinating weeds that try to become established. Grass seed growers have also found that as a result of eliminating competition early in the establishment period, Brominal helps assure weed-free turf that will provide earlier and higher yields."
