A long-term study was established to determine the effects of rate, application method, and repeated applications of norflurazon on soil persistence and plant injury for sorghum, corn, and wheat. Preplant incorporated (PPI) and preemergence (PE) applications of norflurazon at 1.1 (1X) and 2.2 kg ai/ha (2X) initially were applied in 1981. Subplots were retreated in 1982 and 1983. Rotational crops were planted each year from 1982 to 1987. Evaluations taken in 1982 (14 months after initial treatment) showed slight injury to wheat, sorghum, and corn from 1X applications and significant injury from 2X applications. Evaluations 1 to 3 yr after final application indicated that repeated applications, even at the 1X rate, increased norflurazon residues and rotational crop injury. At both 1X and 2X rates, PPI treatments increased norflurazon persistence compared to PE applications.
