Abstract: The authors observed both paraquat and glyphosate were effective in killing tall fescue in Tennessee. Paraquat at 2.2 kg ai/ha or glyphosate at 2.2 kg ai/ha were effective at reducing tall fescue cover 10 MAT (months after treatment). Paraquat was more effective when applied in fall than spring. The authors recommended applying herbicides mid-September to mid-October to achieve the best kills under environmental conditions in Tennessee.
