Research Project: Herbicide Efficacy Studies in Ornamental and Vegetable Crops

Location: Vegetable and Forage Crops Production Research

Project Number: 0500-00007-102-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: Aug 04, 2010
End Date: Aug 03, 2015

Objective:
Objective 1: Develop chemical control measures for weeds in ornamental vegetables, fruits, and specialty crops. [NP 304, C2, PS 2B] Objective 2: Determine the response of crops to herbicides to support new pesticide registrations in minor acreage crops. [NP 304, C2, PS 2B]

Approach:
Herbicides, alone or in combination with other herbicides or with cultural and mechanical weed control methods, will be evaluated under field conditions to determine weed control and crop responses. The research conducted in this project is part of the national effort of ARS to generate information supporting the registration of minor use pesticides in cooperation with the national IR-4 program.
