GLUFOSINATE ( BASF,UPL NA ) SUGARCANE ( 99 = MISC GROUP ) UNDER EVALUATION (06) LA;


Reasons for need: Itchgrass [Rottboellia cochinchinensis (Lour.). Currently, the sugarcane industry is limited to paraquat for non-selective weed control utilizing post-directed/shielded/hooded applications. With concerns about the future of paraquat’s registration status, other herbicide options are needed. Glufosinate-ammonium may also provide benefits in controlling troublesome broadleaf weeds such as divine nightshade [Solanum nigrescens (Mart. & Gal.)], ragweed parthenium (Parthenium hysterophorus L.), and morningglory (Ipomoea spp.):06/24/sb
