Abstract
A field experiment was conducted to test the potential of alachlor, CP 55097, trifluralin, napropamide, and a combination of trifluralin and napropamide for weed control in transplanted cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Alachlor and CP 55097 gave excellent control of crabgrass, pigweed, lambsquarters and ragweed. High rates of CP 55097 caused stunting in each of the 3 crops tested, with the stunting becoming more severe as the season progressed. Death of the terminal buds was noted in some of the cabbage plants treated with 3.5 kg ai/ha of CP 55097. Yield increases were noted in the alachlor and CP 55097 treatments.
