the most important cool-season turfgrasses, the use of tall fescue in tropical regions has been constrained by remarkably poor salt tolerance compared with warm-season turfgrasses ( Alshammary et al., 2004 ; Watkins et al., 2011 ). Interestingly

Weed control is a major issue in jack-o-lantern pumpkin production as a result of the limited number of registered herbicides ( Walters et al., 2008 ). Many of the herbicides currently registered for pumpkins have potential crop injury risks, high
