SelectMax labeled for additional vegetable crops
Editor’s note: This article is from the archives of the MSU Crop Advisory Team Alerts. Check the label of any pesticide referenced to ensure your use is included.
SelectMax, a postemergence graminicide, has been labeled for several additional vegetable crops. It now may be used on asparagus, snap beans, herbs, leafy greens and peas. The normal use rate for SelectMax is 9-16 fl oz per acre. Use the high rate for control of perennial grasses and annual bluegrass. The preharvest interval for asparagus is one day; 21 days for snapbeans, 14 days for herbs, 14 days for leafy greens, and 21 days for succulent shelled peas.
SelectMax is a new formulation of clethodim (Select), which may be more active on a volume basis than Select. All the postemergence grass herbicides have a similar mode of action on grasses, but each is slightly different on each grass weed. It is a good idea to alternate postemergence grass herbicides when more than one are registered on a crop.
