Postemergence Control of Eclipta (Eclipta prostrata L.) in Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.)

W. James Grichar, A. E. Colburn

Abstract


Field studies were conducted in South and Central Texas from 1992 through 1994 to evaluate eight postemergence broadleaf herbicides used alone and in combination to control eclipta. Cadre, Buctril, Butoxone and Pursuit failed to control eclipta. Cobra, Blazer alone, or in combination with Butoxone, provided intermediate control. Tough alone, or in combination with Butoxone, provided the most consistent control of eclipta. Effective eclipta control increased peanut yields up to 98% compared to the untreated check.
