Abstract

Reports that glyphosate, the active ingredient of a post-emergence broad-spectrum herbicide, may inhibit tall fescue germination when applied before seeding were not supported by field experiments. The method of seeding (hydroseeding or overseeding), however, may contribute to poor establishment.
