- ... Indiangrass [Sorghastrum nutans (L.) Nash] lacks sufficient seedling atrazine [6-chloro-N-ethyl-N-(1-methylethyl)-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine] tolerance to permit the use of atrazine as a pre-emergence herbicide. The principle objective of this study was to estimate the genetic variability for seedling atrazine tolerance in two indiangrass populations, Ǹebraska 54' and H̀olt', using seed harvested ...
