Abstract:

Simulated rainfall was applied to flats of oats Avena sativa L. growing in greenhouse soil which had previously been treated with combinations of m-3,3-dimethylureidophenyl-tert-butyl-carbamate karbutilate and di-1-p- menthene Vapor Gard. Aliquots of the runoff from each treatment were applied to the roots of bean plants Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv. Black Valentine grown in solution culture as a bioassay for the presence of the herbicide. The growth of the bean plants treated with runoff water from the karbutilate Vapor Gard treatment was significantly less than the growth of the plants receiving runoff aliquots from the karbutilate treatment.
