Report to the Oregon Processed Vegetable Commission

  1. evaluate the tolerance of snap beans to preemergence applications of dimethenamid and acetochlor under two irrigation regimes. These choloracetamide herbicides have a chemistry similar to metolachlor (Dual) and may fit weed control niches in the Willamette Valley in sweet corn and possibly other crops. Understanding performance under varied conditions will determine if these herbicides have potential in snap bean production or other vegetable crops.
