Abstract

Trimec 881 and 823 (mixture of 2,4-D; MCPP and dicamba in 2:1:0.l and 1:1:0.25 ratio respectively) and trichlopyr ester were evaluated for effectiveness against saw palmetto, Serenoa repens (Bartram) Small, when they were applied at three rates in April, June, and August. Herbicides were most effective with April applicatiorr, least effective in June, and intermediate in August. All rates applied in April gave at least 40% topkill, but trichlopyr at 14 and 28 l/ha applied in 935 l/ha water in April gave the best results.
