  1. Parrot’s feather: Use of herbicides - carfentrazone-ethyl

    A small, replicated, controlled, laboratory study conducted in the USA (Richardson et al. 2008), found that the herbicide carfentrazone-ethyl reduced growth in parrot’s feather Myriophyllum aquaticum. Parrot’s feather plants treated with carfentrazone-ethyl had a lower dry weight (0.55–0.88 g) than untreated plants (1.43 g). Parrot’s feather shoot tips (5–10 cm) were transplanted into 9 cm2 pots. Carfentrazone-ethyl application rate ranged between 56 and 224 g/ha and each herbicide rate was applied to pots with three plants and plants in one pot were left unsprayed. Dates of the studies are not presented.

  2. Parrot’s feather: Use of herbicides - other herbicides

    A small, replicated, controlled, laboratory study conducted in the USA (Richardson et al. 2008), found that the herbicide flumioxazin reduced growth in parrot’s feather Myriophyllum aquaticum. Parrot’s feather plants sprayed with flumioxazin had a lower dry weight (0.29–0.74 g) than unsprayed plants (1.43 g). Parrot’s feather shoot tips (5–10 cm) were transplanted into 9 cm2 pots. Application rate of the herbicide flumioxazin ranged between 34 and 437 g/ha and each herbicide rate was applied to pots with three plants and plants in one pot were left unsprayed. Dates of the studies are not presented.
