Abstract

Diuron offers alfalfa growers the possibility of excellent control of winter annuol weeds, according to Antelope Valley tests, with no damage to the crop when properly applied. Clean alfalfa resulting from treatment returned $12 to $15 per ton more than weed-infested hay (including cost of treatment), and was also ready for a quick sale.
