A trial was conducted to evaluate Anthem Flex and metribuzin combinations for weed control and lentil tolerance. Lentil were planted on April 29, 2021. Herbicide treatments were applied on May 5. Lentil emerged on May 15. Rainfall measuring 1.1 inches fell between herbicide application and lentil emergence. Kochia control was 96 to 100% 39 days after emergence with all treatments except pendimethalin (Prowl H2O) where no kochia control was observed. Wild buckwheat control was inconsistent. No herbicide treatment resulted in reduction of lentil height, stand, and yield.
