Abstract

This study evaluated the fate of sulfometuron methyl in large forest-land watersheds in typical soils of the southern United States. Sulfometuron methyl is active over a range of rates and is recommended at rates up to 0.63 kilograms active ingredient per hectare (kg ai/ha) in non-crop areas for the control of annual and perennial grasses, and broadleaved weeds. The herbicide will be used for weed control on established pine seedlings at a maximum recommended rate of 0.42 kg ai/ha.
