Abstract

The effects of seed depth on growing point location of wild-proso millet, effects of alachlor placement, and chemical control of wild-proso millet were studied in field and greenhouse experiments. In 1986, 55 to 88% of the seedlings originating in the top 6 cm of soil had their growing point above the soil surface. The respective figures were 11 to 36% in 1987. Shoot exposure to alachlor resulted in significantly greater phytotoxicity than root exposure. Only EPTC or vernolate with a protectant, preplant incorporated, or pendimethalin preemergence, followed by atrazine plus tridiphane postemergence controlled wild-proso millet more than 85% all season.
