Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate saltgrass (Distichlis spicata) for tolerance to select herbicides commonly used in turf." Explains that "inland saltgrass is a native warm-season grass which has excellent tolerance to water and soil salinity, drought, submersion, and sodic soils." Describes the experiment and the methods used, reporting results.

USGA Summary Points:Commonly used turfgrass herbicides were screened on saltgrass (Distichlis spicata) for tolerance at 1X and 2X label rates Herbicide product treatments which were generally regarded as safe for saltgrass at rates/volumes applied here included: Corsair (1X and 2X); Manor (1X and 2X); Driver XLR8 (1X); Certainty (1X and 2X); Velocity (1X and 2X); Quicksilver (1X and 2X); Dismiss (1X and 2X); 2,4-D amine (1X); Banvel (1X); Image (1X and 2X); Illoxon (1X); Buctrill (1X and 2X); Spotlight (1X); Sedgehammer (1X and 2X); MSMA (1X and 2X); NIS (1X and 2X); MSO (1X and 2X); Revolver (1X) Treatments which caused a slight decrease in quality for either a brief period of time or had marginal performance for at least two of the five rating events included: Drive XLR8 (2X); Revolver (2X); Banvel (2X); Illoxon (2X); Spotlight (2X); 2-4,D (2x) Treatments which caused an extreme loss of color, an enhanced straw condition, and subsequent loss of quality to below acceptable levels for at least two rating periods (over a 14-day period) included: Monument (1X and 2X); Katana (1X and 2X); Tranxit (1X and 2X); Plateau (1x and 2x)
