Abstract

The present two field experiments, involving plots of Italian ryegrass sown in 1976, 1980 and 1984 confirmed results of earlier work in which the yield and persistence of Italian ryegrass was greatly increased by the application of pesticide. A range of pesticide treatments were used. The responses to application of permethrin applied three times per year average 8% for the three years of the first experiment and 5% for the five years of the second experiment. Such responses appeared cost-effective, but the overall environmental impact of such applications is not known.
