Grass Control With Paraquat or Clethodim Peanut Notes No. 70 2021

— Written By

Question:

What are your thoughts on spraying grass in this hot and dry? Going to look at a field today for a grower that has lots of grass. All fields are clean except one. What are your thoughts on spraying in conditions and if just grass would go with a clethodim or still go with Gramoxone?

Jordan:

If grass is small try paraquat first. That will help a lot. If it is large spray clethodim. It is relatively inexpensive. Use the higher rate of clethodim, but maybe paraquat if weeds are small.

Jordan:

The advantage of paraquat is the small broadleaf weeds it controls and suppression of nutsedge in addition to grass control.
