Abstract/Contents:"The high cost of pesticide development has prohibited the introduction of new herbicides which are used only for 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, and chlorsulfuron for control of broadleaf plantain, buckhorn plantain, and white clover in a mixed Kentucky bluegrass-tall fescue turfgrass stand. Treatments consisted of sprays containing individual herbicides or combinations of herbicides applied in 28 gal of water/A, or herbicide-fertilizer combinations applied in 172 gal of water/A. Weed control ratings taken 8 wks after herbicide application indicated that the best control of broadleaf plantain was afforded by the herbicide 2,4-D alone or in combination with other herbicides. Equally good control was found on plots treated with a combination of bromoxynil and MCPP. The herbicides chlorsulfuron and dicamba did not control broadleaf plantain. The results for buckhorn plantain closely paralleled those for broadleaf plantain. The best control of white clover was found on plots treated with the herbicides MCPP and dicamba either alone or in combination with other materials. Neither 2,4-D nor chlorsulfuron adequately controlled this weed species. Weed control was not affected when fertilizer was combined with herbicides and applied in a large volume of water."
