Abstract:
Field research was conducted at Yuma and Goodyear, AZ on fallowed ground to measure the response of purple nutsedge to butylate and EPTC (Goodyear only). At Yuma, the greatest reduction in the number of live tubers resulted when two years of fallow were combined with annual summer application of 3.3 lb/A of butylate. At Goodyear, butylate and EPTC were more effective at controlling purple nutsedge when applied in early July vs early September. Also, one timely application of EPTC or butylate made in July was more successful in reducing the number of live tubers than two applications (July, Sept). September herbicide treatments were not as effective with an irrigation compared to without.
