Herbicide tolerance in grasses and native forb species


Edvarchuk, Kimberly A.; Ransom, Corey V. 2010. Herbicide tolerance in grasses and native forb species. In: Campbell, Joan; Rauch, Traci, eds. Proceedings of the Western Society of Weed Science, Volume 63. Las Cruces, NM: Western Society of Weed Science. p. 9-10.

Native forb seed is needed to restore the rangelands of the Intermountain West. Studies were conducted to identify herbicides that can be used to control weeds in forb seed production with limited injury to the forbs. The forbs evaluated in this project include: basalt milkvetch (Astragalus filipes), Western prairie clover (Dalea ornata), and Searls' prairie clover (Dalea searlsiae). Field trials were conducted in 2009 in Logan, UT on established fields transplanted in 2005 from cone-tainers and treatments were applied with a shielded bicycle sprayer delivering 20 gpa at 30 psi.

Keywords: grasses, native forb seed, herbicide
