Control of the Noxious Weed Mile-A-Minute (Polygonum perfoliatum) in Reforestation
Abstract:Field studies were conducted to evaluate the efficacy of selected herbicides to control the noxious weed mile-a-minute (Polygonum perfoliatum L). The effectiveness of pre- and postemergence applications of the herbicides Oust®, Velpar L®, Arsenal®, AAtrex®, Pursuit®, and Pursuit Plus® and postemergence application of Roundup® were evaluated. Preemergence applications of most of the herbicides were more effective in controllingmile-a-minute than postemergence applications. Low preemergent rates of Oust, Velpar L, Arsenal, AAtrex, Pursuit, and Pursuit Plus were highly effective in controlling mile-a-minute; Roundup and Arsenal provided the best postemergence control.
