Abstract

IN a recent article, Templeman1 discusses the use Of growth-promoting substances for selective weed control, referring particularly to agricultural operations with 2-methy1-4-chloro-phenoxyacetic acid (Methoxone or M.C.P.A.). He is concerned mainly with annual weeds, while the problems associated with control of well-established perennial weeds in a turf sward call for a somewhat different approach.
