Preemergence Weed Management with Command in Cotton

S.J. Stringer and T.I. Crumby


Forty-three weed control demonstration trials were conducted in the Mid-South to evaluate the performance of cotton herbicide programs based on preemergence applications of Command in comparison to established grower standards. These trials clearly demonstrated the suitability of Command herbicide in Southern cotton weed management programs. It's use resulted in broad spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control superior to those programs normally implemented by growers. In addition, the residual properties of Command reduced the number of required postemergence and layby herbicide applications. The trials demonstrated that when properly safened with an organophosphate soil insecticide, Command resulted in no significant injury to cotton seedlings.

Several important amendments have been proposed for the Command cotton label for 1994. Use in accordance with these changes will reduce the potential for off-target movement and non-target plant impacts.
