Timing of herbicide treatment can be the difference in having a one-pass weed control system or needing multiple herbicide applications. Linuron can provide beneficial weed control in potato, especially when tank mixed with other herbicides. Linuron provides control of hard-tocontrol weeds such as common lambsquarters, red root pigweed, and nightshade species. However, aerial applications are not allowed and it does not work well in soils with high clay content or high organic matter. It may be advantageous because it may cause less damage to potato plants as they are emerging when compared to other herbicides.
