Experiments were conducted to evaluate efficacy of dicamba, glufosinate, and glyphosate on Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri S. Wats.). Residual control was evaluated after dicamba was applied alone and in combination with fomesafen, fluometuron, acetochlor, and prometryn. Postemergence efficacy of dicamba, glufosinate, and glyphosate on different size Palmer amaranth was also evaluated. In addition, combinations of dicamba, glufosinate, and glyphosate were evaluated for efficacy on Palmer amaranth as well as spray coverage and spray droplet size as affected by various spray nozzles. Lastly, tolerance to dicamba, glufosinate, and glyphosate of cotton cultivars containing Bollgard II® XtendFlex™ technology was examined. Dicamba exhibited preemergence activity on Palmer amaranth; however, activity was heavily dependent on rainfall. Postemergence applications of dicamba increased control of Palmer amaranth. Spray nozzle selection influenced spray coverage and droplet size. Tolerance of cultivars containing Bollgard II® XtendFlex™ technology was over 90% at the end of the year regardless of herbicide.
