Abstract

Perennial weeds have retarded agricultural progress, since their first appearance in cultivated fields. They have grown and survived the destructive efforts of the farmer and agricultural scientist, over a great period of time. Many farmers have become discouraged and much valuable land has lain idle because of this wasteful weed persistence.

These dismal consequences have stimulated constant effort at experimental stations to discover more effective methods of batlting the pest. The use of chemicals has been one of the most prominent weapons and, of the most recent chemicals tried, the chlorates are the most promising.
