Abstract:
A study was conducted at the Maricopa Agricultural Center to compare various cotton weed control programs that combined the use of the over-the-top herbicides Buctril, Roundup Ultra and Staple with reduced or eliminated preemergence herbicide applications in dry planted cotton. Roundup Utra provide superior large seedling Palmer amaranth control compared to Buctril or Staple. The yield and end of the season weed control data showed that BXNBuctril and Staple weed control strategies require the application of a dinitroaniline herbicide prior to planting. The data also suggest that a band application of Prowl in combination with timely postemergence Buctril or Staple applications would be just as effective as preplant incorporated application of Prowl. In contrast to the Buctril and Staple herbicide treatments, the end of the season weed control ratings and seed cotton yield were the same for all of the Roundup Ready cotton treatments suggesting that Roundup Ready cotton weed control strategies do not necessarily require a dinitroaniline herbicide (Prowl or Trejlan) application prior to planting.
