To quantify soil residual activity and plantback periods for two maize herbicides saflufenacil and topramezone different rates were applied to a cultivated soil and samples (05 cm) collected at regular intervals for glasshouse bioassays Phytotoxic residues of saflufenacil applied at 17 g ai/ha the rate used for conservation tillage and pasture renovation persisted in the soil for lt; 2 weeks for the susceptible species viz white clover onion carrot and radish Residual activity from 102 g ai/ha the rate recommended for maize dissipated within 4 weeks for all species Wheat ryegrass carrot squash onions and tomato were not affected by topramezone residues from rates up to 202 g ai/ha in soil collected 2 weeks after treatment (WAT) However peas white clover and radish all suffered damage in samples collected 2 WAT By 4 WAT only white clover and peas exhibited minor phytotoxicity
