|Abstract:||Abstract: The potential for herbicide dispersion from treated sites can cause concerns regarding the impact on desirable floating-leaf and emergent vegetation. There are many scenarios where targeted submersed invasive weeds and non-target floating-leaf and emergent plants grow in close proximity. This study was conducted to determine the effects of submersed applications of the auxin-mimicking herbicides 2,4-D and triclopyr, on spatterdock (Nuphar lutea (L.) Sm.), American bulrush (Schoenoplectus americanus Pers.), and soft-stem bulrush (S. tabernaemontani (C.C. Gmel.) Palla). Use rates and exposures that provide control of the submersed invasive Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum L.) were evaluated against these valuable non-target emergent species.|
