Abstract/Contents:"The high cost of pesticide development has prohibited the introduction of new herbicides which are used exclusively for broadleaf weed control in turfgrass stands. Manufacturers are evaluating new formulations of standard turfgrass herbicides or seeking data to expand the label of products which have proven efficacious on large scale crops. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the herbicides 2,4-D, MCPP, dicamba, bromoxynil, MCPA, chlorsulfuron and DPX-T6376 for control of broadleaf plantain (Plantago major L.), buckhorn plantain (Plantago lanceolata L.) and white clover (Trifolium repens L.) in a mixed Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.), tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Screb. [Schreb.]), turfgrass stand. Treatments consisted of sprays containing individual herbicides or combinations of herbicides applied in 28 gal of water/A. Weed control ratings taken 6 wk after herbicide application indicated that the best control of both plantain species was obtained with the herbicide 2,4-D, alone or in combination with other herbicides. The herbicide chlorsulfuron did not control the plantain species resent. The best control of white clover was found on plots treated with the herbicides MCPP and dicamba either alone or in combination. DPX-T6376 afforded excellent control of both plantains and white clover, however this herbicide was significantly phytotoxic to the Kentucky bluegrass turf. Best control of both plantain species and white clover with minimum damage to the Kentucky bluegrass turf was obtained with the combination of 2,4-D , MCPP, and dicamba."
