Abstract/Contents:"The addition of ammonium sulfate fertilizer to Roundup improved weed control by as much as 40-60 percent in South Dakota studies. Clair Stymiest, South Dakota State University extension agronomist, said Roundup plus a surfactant gives excellent control to grass and weeds. But if the carrier is hard water, the product can be tied-up and is less likely to be absorbed through the weed's leaf surface. He said the addition of ammonium sulfate to the mix can reduce the tie-up and give better control to such weeds as downy brome (cheatgrass). Stymiest says the most effective control involves spraying just before the emergence of the downy brome seed head. He warns that Roundup plus 2,4-D or Banvel has little residual soil activity, so these products must be applied when the weeds are actively growing."
