Weed management in citrus orchards largely involves the application of nonselective herbicides (e.g., glyphosate and paraquat) for postemergence control ( Singh et al., 2005 ). The off-target movement of these herbicides (drift) can affect citrus

Nitrogen applications are essential for producing quality ornamental plants. Nitrogen commonly is applied as nitrate (NO 3 − ) or ammonium (NH 4 + )-N in commercially available soluble and/or controlled-release fertilizer formulations. Ammonium-N is
