In field trials at 5 sites in 1969, formamide applied at 0, 28, 56 or 112 kg N/ha to tall fescue, smooth brome, cocksfoot and reed canarygrass was somewhat less effective than was urea/ammonium nitrate solution or commercial prilled fertilizer applied at the same N rates. Slight injury to leaf tips of smooth brome, cocksfoot and reed canarygrass following formamide sprays disappeared within a few days.
