OLIVEIRA, Anderson Ramos de; FREITAS, Silvério de Paiva  and  FREITAS, Ismael Lourenço de Jesus. Control of Cyperus rotundus L. with trifloxysulfuron-sodium in sugar-cane. Rev. Ceres [online]. 2010, vol.57, n.6, pp.736-741. ISSN 0034-737X.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of trifloxysulfuron-sodium used alone, mixed or in sequential application with other herbicides to control Cyperus rotundus L. in sugar cane. The study was conducted in an area of commercial production of variety RB 72-454 at "Paraíso Plant" and a greenhouse at the State University "Darcy Ribeiro", Campos dos Goytacazes, RJ. The field plots were subjected to nine treatments: 2,4-D; trifloxysulfuron-sodium + ametryn; trifloxysulturon-sodium, 2,4-D + 2,4-D (20 days after the first application -DAP) 2, 4-D + ametryn trifloxysulfuron-sodium (20 DAP), 2,4-D + trifloxysulfuron-sodium (20 DAP); halosulfuron (20 DAP), control with and without hand weeding. The greenhouse trial evaluated the viability of purple nutsedge bulbs as a function of the treatments used in the experiment carried out in the field. The results indicated that the trifloxysulfuron-sodium applied alone or mixed with ametryn in sequential application to 2,4-D was excellent in controlling C. rotundus. These herbicides, along with halosulfuron applied alone reduced the capacity for reinfestation of this specie by reducing propagation and growth.
