Abstract/Contents:"An undisturbed weedy lawn turf area in southwestern Michigan was fumigated with odorized methyl bromide at the rate of one pound per 100 sq. ft. Fumigation was made September 2, 1954. Exposure period was 24 hours. Air temperature during fumigation varied between 62° and 70° F. Soil temperature was 67° F. Complete fertilizer, analysis 12-12-12, was applied at the rate of 25 pounds per 1000 sq. ft. Merion bluegrass at the rate of 1 lb. on 750 sq. ft. was seeded on the undisturbed dead turf one day after the cover was removed. Seed was washed off dead vegetation and brought in contact with soil by heavy sprinkling. A good turf requiring mowing was obtained by October 20. Weeds present in the turf prior to fumigation were: crabgrass (Digitaria ischaemum), nutgrass (Cyperus esculentus), broadleaved plantain (Plantago major), buckhorn plantain (Plantago lanceolata), dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), common chickweed (Stellaria media) and common mouse-ear chickweed (Cerastium vulgatum). Observations made during the 1955 growing season indicated complete kill of all the above weeds and their seeds in the treated area. An excellent stand of pure Merion bluegrass was obtained, the only weed present being white clover."
