AbstractSeveral selective and nonselective foliar-active herbicides were applied alone and in 1:1 combinations as broadcast sprays in the spring for control of Drummond's goldenweed on the Coastal Prairie of Texas. Picloram at 0.56 kg/ha or picloram plus 2,4,5-T, glyphosate, or atrazine plus paraquat at 1.12 kg/ha consistently controlled the weed. Atrazine and 2,4-D, applied singly or in combination at 1.12 to 2.24 kg/ha total herbicide, effectively controlled Drummond's goldenweed only when soil-water content was high. Dicamba, like 2,4-D, was effective when applied in a "wet" year but not in a "dry" year. The effective herbicides controlled Drummond's goldenweed for at least 3 years. Although Drummond's goldenweed is morphologically similar to common goldenweed, it is apparently more susceptible to herbicides than its western counterpart.
