Abstract: Field studies were conducted from 1995 through 1998 to evaluate citronmelon control with postemergence (POST) herbicides. Imazapic at any application timing and late postemergence (LPOST) applications of 2,4-DB were the only herbicides that provided >80% control of citronmelon late season. Other herbicides such as acifluorfen, imazethapyr, lactofen, and pyridate provided acceptable (>75%) early-season control of citronmelon, but control was inadequate at harvest.
Nomenclature: Acifluorfen; imazapic; imazethapyr; lactofen; pyridate; 2,4-DB; citronmelon, Citrullus lanatus var. citroidas #3 CITCL; peanut, Arachis hypogaea L. ‘GK-7’.
Additional index word: Groundnut.
