Evaluation of Potential New Herbicides in Carrots Applied as a Directed Spray at Layby

Series/Report Number: COARC2016

Abstract: Weed resistance to ongoing use of Lorox in carrots grown for seed is a concern to industry representatives and growers. This project was established to evaluate two new products compared to current industry standard treatments. Spartan (sulfentrazone) is used in peppermint production and there is local knowledge about the spectrum of weed that it is effective on. Results from a directed spray application at layby indicate that it may provide a good fit in carrot seed production.
