Abstract

Methyl sulfanilylcarbamate (asulam) was effective for the selective control of several grassy weeds in established st. augustinegrass (Stenotaphrum secundatum (Walt.) Kuntze), ‘Tifway’ bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon L.), and ‘Emerald’ zoysiagrass (Zoysia matrella Merr.). Bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flugge) and centipedegrass (Eremochloa ophuroides (Munro) Hack.) were severely injured when asulam was used at a rate of 2.24 kg ai/ha. Thirty-six species of ornamental plants were relatively tolerant to foliage applications of asulam at rates of 2.24 and 4.48 kg ai/ha with growth normal on all but 4 ornamental species 22 weeks following treatment.
