The Comparison of Aerial and Sprinkler Applied Delayed Applications of Kerb® to LettuceTickes, Barry; Byrne, David N.; Baciewicz, Patti (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2004-09)Five tests were conducted to compare delayed applications of Kerb applied by air with applications made through sprinklers. Applications were made commercially to plots ranging in size from 11 to 18 acres. Broadleaf weed control was better in all tests from the sprinkler applied Kerb than from aerial application. The control of volunteer sudangrass was poor in one test from both types of applications and worse from the sprinkler than the aerial application. It was concluded that applying Kerb though sprinklers to lettuce is effective and often superior to aerial applications.
