Onarm research was conducted in 2011 and 2012 to determine the postemergence and residual control by dicamba of glyphosate-resistant (GR) Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri S. Wats.). Preemergence dicamba at 0, 0.28, 0.56, and 1.1 kg ae ha-1 and 0.07 kg ae ha-1 flumioxazin was applied at 30, 15 and 0 days prior to planting. Postemergence dicamba at 0.28, 0.56, and 1.1 kg ae ha-1 with and without 0.84 kg ae ha-1 glyphosate was applied to 5, 10 and 15 cm Palmer amaranth. In addition, a greenhouse experiment was conducted in 2012 to evaluate and confirm the optimum rate for control of Palmer amaranth with a new formulation of dicamba (BAS 18322H). In the greenhouse, dicamba at 0.14, 0.28, 0.56, 1.1, and 2.2 kg ae ha-1 was applied to 5, 10, and 15 cm Palmer amaranth.
