During 1978-80, fluridone at 0.1, 0.2 or 0.3 kg/ha was applied with or without 0.6 kg trifluralin/ha before the presowing irrigation for cotton cv. Acala SJ-2. Without trifluralin, fluridone at 0.1 kg/ha controlled <60% Echinochloa crus-galli or Amaranthus retroflexus, but the 0.3 kg/ha rate controlled 90%. With trifluralin, 98% of the weeds were controlled. Fluridone alone also controlled 85% or more of Solanum nigrum but it did not alter cotton stand or yield. Fluridone residues 8 months after treatment reduced the growth of Ipomoea hederacea, Echinochloa crus-galli var. frumentacea and Sorghum bicolor by 75% or more
