Abstract/Contents:"Ground yardwaste is widely used in Southern California for weed control and soil amendments. However, the survival of weed propagules in the mulch has not been studied. Experiments conducted in spring and summer of 2002 near Oxnard, California compared survival of purple nutsedge tubers, bermudagrass rhizomes, and seed of little mallow and California burclover in 7.6 m3 [m3] piles of freshly ground mulch and 18 mo old mulch. Heat resistant permeable bags with weed propagules were placed at 0, 0.15, 0.3 and 1 m depths in the mulch piles and removed at 0.25, 1 ,2, 4, 7, 14, 21, 28 and 56 d. Survival of propagules differed among the weed species. However, all weed propagules were killed in freshly ground mulch after 2 d at 1 m and after 7 d at 0.3 m, weed germination and viability were variable at 0.15 m and not affected at 0 m. Weed germination and viability at all depths and removal times were not affected in 18 mo old mulch. Temperatures greater than 60 C generated at depths greater than 0.3 m in freshly ground mulch were likely responsible for destruction of weed propagules."
