Resistance of tropical pasture species to herbicides



Resistance of tropical pasture species to herbicides



Proceedings of the 13th International Grassland Congress Sectional Papers, Sections 8-9-10: 93-101



Of the various tropical forage legumes studied for their response to 0.08-0.48% solutions of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T in 700 litres water/ha, stylo (Stylosanthes guianensis) showed most resistance, followed by puro (Pueraria phaseoloides) and greenleaf desmodium (Desmodium intortum), while siratro (Macroptilium atropurpureum) was the most susceptible. Of the two herbicides, 2,4,5-T was the more phytotoxic and its use in legume forage should be discouraged.
