Broadleaf Weed Control Systems in Roundup Ready™ Cotton

W.C. Elkins, D.R. Shaw, C.E. Snipes


Field studies were conducted in 1995 at the Delta Branch Experiment Station at Stoneville, MS to evaluate Roundup and Staple with current PRE treatments for weed control in cotton. PPI/PRE treatments included 0.75 lb ai/A Treflan, 0.75 lb/A Treflan plus 0.8 lb/A Cotoran, and 1.0 lb/A Zorial. POST treatments evaluated were 1.0 oz/A Staple (3" cotton) followed by 1.0 oz/A Staple (6" cotton); 0.75 lb ae/A Roundup (3"); and 0.75 lb/A Roundup (3") followed by 0.56 lb/A Roundup (6"). Cotton was planted and PRE applications were made on May 11, 1995. Visual ratings of hemp sesbania [Sesbania exaltata (Raf.) Rydb.], common cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium L.), morningglory species (Ipomoea spp.), and common purslane (Portulaca oleracea L.) control and cotton injury were determined at 9 weeks after planting (WAP).
