  1. Goal impregnated fertilizer for weed control in broccoli.
    • Two trials were conducted during 1999 to assess the potential of using Goal impregnated fertilizer for postemergence weed control in direct-seeded broccoli.
  2. Goal application timing and efficacy
    • Goal efficacy was much greater overall than in 1998. Soil moisture at planting was the main factor influencing emergence in both years. Tillage or herbicide application timing did not consistently influence soil moisture.
