Weed Control in Cotton with Command 3 ME, Fluometuron, and Staple

B. D. Sims, T. W. Mize, E. V. Gage and H. R. Mitchell


Several trials were initiated in 1997, to evaluate the length of residual weed control of Command 3 ME plus fluometuron with and without Staple postemergence and to evaluate Command 3 ME plus fluometuron preemergence followed by Staple postemergence in a systems approach to weed control in cotton compared to competitive programs. Soil applied treatments with Command 3 ME controlled problem weeds in cotton better and longer into the season than Prowl + fluometuron or Zorial + fluometuron applied PRE. Staple applied postemergence following the preemergence treatments generally lengthened weed control in the Command plus fluometuron treatments but not always in competitive treatments. In a systems approach, preemergence treatments that contained Command at 0.5 to 1.0 lb ai/ac and followed by Staple postemergence, controlled troublesome weeds in cotton equal to or better than competitive treatments.
