This report offers a brief summary of current herbicide usage and a review of the weed problems with reference to research results in California fruit crops. Herbicide weed control ratings of 70% or better in the tables are considered commercially acceptable. Listings of herbicides and rates in this article are not to be considered as University of California recommendations. There are many yet unregistered herbicides—and unregistered uses of herbicides—found effective in orchard research that are not discussed here. Current weed control recommendations are available at local county Farm Advisor offices.
