Abstract/Contents:Study to evaluate experimental and commercial herbicides in the control of wild violets. The site chosen for this study was a very mature and dense stand of wild violets located on the University of Kentucky Spindletop Research Farm near Lexington. The plots measured 6' X 10' with 3 replications. All herbicide treatments were applied on May 24, 1985. A second application was made to one-half the plots 20 days later (June 13). After 11 days (June 24) all the plots were treated again. During the test, the turf was maintained at 3.0 inches. Visual ratings were taken on various dates throughout the test to estimate control of the herbicides and recovery of the wild violets. A table provides herbicides, formulation, application dates, and % wild violets on 6/18, 8/5, 9/19, 10/31/85 and 4/17/86. Turflon D and Triclopyr gave best overall control.
