Abstract/Contents:"The control of weeds always has been and probably always will be an important factor in the maintenance of turf. ...It is natural therefore, that those who have been interested in controlling weeds have been hopefully watching the study of chemicals for this purpose. ...The ideal killer for turf weeds is one that will destroy the greatest number of weeds with the lightest dose; that will cause the least amount of harm to the grass when applied at the dose required to kill weeds; that will be cheap, easy to apply and relatively safe to handle. Chemical weed killers should not be considered as substitutes for good cultural practices for the production of weed-free turf. They should be regarded as useful aids to supplement the best cultural practices." Gives the results of different chemicals on different grasses. Also gives application methods. Pays particular attention to arsenic.
