Abstract

Six chemicals were tested at random with 3 replications at 3 rates for foliar activity on kudzu [Pueraria lobata (Willd.) Ohwi]. All chemicals gave some degree of control. DPX-6376, XRM-3972 (Lontrel), and Oust(TM) Weed Killer (formerly known as DPX-5648) gave more than 99% topkill for 3 l/2 months. Preliminary results of greenhouse tests on 1-year-old loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seedlings indicate Lontrel, Oust, and DPX-6376 are safe for foliar application at rates effective on kudzu.
