Abstract/Contents:"1. Over a period of four years, twenty-six herbicides were tested for their effectiveness in controlling crabgrass in a bluegrass lawn. Two of these herbicides - potassium cyanate (KOCN) and phenyl mercuric acetate (PMAS) - have been tested in all four years. 2. Two to three applications of KOCN applied at eight pounds per acre after emergence of the crabgrass killed an average of 76 per cent of the crabgrass plants present. 3. Two to three applications of PMAS applied at 0.5 to 0.9 pounds per acre killed an average of 89 per cent of the crabgrass plants present. 4. Other herbicides which have given fair to good crabgrass control but which have not been as thoroughly tested include Stoddard solvent, various boronium flouride formulations (S-1998, S-184OM, S-2470), Alanap, disodium methylarsonate, chordane in a petroleum oil (Standard PSpray C,) and sesin. 5. Toxicity of KOCN and PMAS to crabgrass was not as closely associated with environmental factors as was their toxicity to bluegrass. Both high temperatures and drought were associated with increased injury to bluegrass."
