Abstract:
Field experiments were conducted in 1992 and 1993 to determine the crop safety and efficacy of norflurazon applications for control of purple and yellow nutsedge in cotton. Norflurazon was applied preplant-incorporated (PPI) or in two applications, PPI and postemergence (POST) when cotton was 3 to 4" tall. As the PPI norflurazon application rate increased from 0.5 to 0.75, 1.0, and 1.25 lb a.i./A, early season nutsedge control increased from 29 to 49, 58, and 76% of control. Early season weed control declined after about 6 weeks. POST emergence applications of norflurazon prolonged the period of nutsedge control. Data collected 71 and 21 days after the PPI and POST applications, respectively, showed that the 0.5 +1.5, 0.75 +1.25, and 1.0+1.0 lb a.i./A (PPI +POST) treatments resulted in 85, 76, and 73% control of nutsedges. Nutsedge control declined throughout the season with the 0.5 +1.5, 0.75 +1.25, and 1.0+1.0 lb a. i./A split applications all resulting in about 27% control 3 months after the POST applications. PPI rates 1.5 to 2 times the labeled rate for a particular soil type caused cotton injury in several experiments in the 1993 cotton season although no injury was observed in the 1992 season.
