Mesotrione Applications for Postemergence Crabgrass Control

Authors: ,


The objective of this research was to determine the following: 1) what rates of mesotrione provide acceptable (> 80%) weed control, 2) if these rates are nonphytotoxic to turfgrasses, 3) if the addition of prodiamine is beneficial at late postemergence timings, and 4) if the residual activity is acceptable.
