Pendimethalin + Dimethenamid-p Crop Safety – 2014

Research Summary Abstract

From 2007 to 2013, IR-4 completed 598 trials on Freehand G (BAS 649 G; dimethenamid-p + pendimethalin). The data contained in this report was generated to register uses of dimethenamid-p + pendimethalin on and around ornamental horticulture plants with broadcast applications, including over the top of established plants. The Freehand rates in this testing program were 2.64, 4.3 and 10.6 pounds active ingredient per acre (lb ai per A) as the 1X, 2X and 2X rates. Freehand G had been applied to 166 plant genera or species. Of these genera and species, 71 exhibited no or minimal transient injury after application at all three rates. Thirty three (33) crops exhibited little or no phytotoxicity at 2.64 lb ai per acre, but did have some injury at 4.3 and/or 10.6 lb ai per acre, or showed injury after the second application.  Of the forty nine (49) crops that still need additional information, there are twelve (12) genera or species in which three or more trials do not show significant injury, but one or more additional trials shows some sort of notable injury, necessitating additional research.  Additional trials are also indicated to establish species or cultivar sensitivities.
