Abstract: The objective of this project was to assess the efficacy of a turf herbicide product developed by Suncor, Petro Canada at different application rates and volumes. The treatments were combinations of different rates and volumes of pre-emergent herbicide, as well as controls for a total of 10 treatments. All of the experimental treatments reduced the broadleaf weed cover as well as the Killex standard. The range in weed reduction was quite large, from 34% to 76%. Timing of the treatment application, late in the season, was likely a source of the relatively poor weed control, since the Killex treatments showed less than 50% reduction in weeds. Of the two weed species most common in the treatment area, control seemed to be significantly better for the dandelions than for the broadleaf plantain. There was no significant visible phytotoxicity of any treatments on the grass, though there was some reduction in canopy reflectance, which may indicate general stress to the vegetation in all treatments.
