Field experiments were conducted in 1997 and 1998 at the Prattville Experiment Field in Prattville, AL and the Wiregrass Substation in Headland, AL to determine if ammonium thiosulfate (ATS) additions to monosodium methanearsonate (MSMA) affects weed control, reduces MSMA-induced cotton injury, lessens the fruiting and maturity delay on cotton caused by MSMA, and lessens MSMA-induced yield reductions in cotton. Treatments were applied before cotton was at the pinhead square stage and the weeds were 5 cm tall. Weeds evaluated were sicklepod, morningglory species, yellow nutsedge, and Texas panicum. ATS additions to MSMA occasionally enhanced control of all weeds 5 to 20%. However, the addition of ATS did not reduce crop injury caused by MSMA, the effects of MSMA on cotton maturity, or yield reductions caused by MSMA.
