Twenty three herbicides including the current registered herbicides were screened for activity on pre-emergent, juvenile and mature plants of the weedy Sporobolus grass species Sporobolus pyramidalis P.Beauv. and Sporobolus fertilis (Steud.) Clayton. No new herbicides trialled effectively controlled mature plants. Propaquizafop, fluazifop-P-hutyI, flupropanate, haloxyfop-R-methyl ester, glyphosate-ipa and clethodim + haloxyfop-R-methyl ester mix showed good activity on juvenile plants while atrazine, flupropanate, dithiopyr and imazapyr where effective as pre-emergent herbicides. Further work needs to be done to define the recommended application rates for juvenile and pre-emergent plant stages and to determine the selectivity of these herbicides on native and exotic pasture grasses.
