Abstract

Chemical and biological control of downy brome (Bromus tectorum) in wheat and alfalfa in North America.

Abstract

The value of thiocarbamates, phenylureas, triazines, propham, trifluralin and diclofop and the potential of new herbicides for control of B. tectorum in wheat are reviewed. Recommendations are made for herbicide application in lucerne and the prospects for development of biological control by insects and plant pathogens including smuts and rusts are discussed.
