GAPAC BURNDOWN TRIAL SYNOPSIS FOR 2002

The test treatments were selected by participating companies. The trial locations were selected by participating consultants. All sites received adequate rainfall prior to treatment but little to none was received during the test period.  At test conclusion, conditions were extremely dry at the Brooks, Decatur and Dodge County locations and overall weed growth and survival at these sites was adversely affected. Cutleaf evening primrose was present at all site locations. Significant differences between treatments were observed in control of this weed at 7 days following application but not at 24 days. The only location with new weed emergence sufficient to rate by test conclusion was in Dougherty County where some rainfall was recorded. Smallflower and Iveyleaf morninglory emergence was most evident there in treatments which did not have residual activity.

Cutleaf evening primrose control at all locations at 7 days after application was superior with the Liberty treatments and with the treatments containing paraquat.  However, at 24 days after application, no significant treatment differences for control of this weed were evident and all treatments were providing good to excellent control. In some cases, the prolonged drought may have improved treatment efficacy by retarding regrowth of sprayed weeds and new weed germination. Horseweed or marestail was present in Dougherty County and was also best controlled by Liberty and by treatments containing paraquat at 7 days after application. Curly dock caused some problem for all treatments at the Houston County site. Best residual activity on late emerging morninglory at the Dougherty County location was observed with treatments containing Valor.
