Several studies were conducted to determine the feasibility of
using terbacil (3-tert-butyl-5-chloro-6-methyluracil) postemergence
to weeds and peppermint (Mentha piperita L.). Three nonionic surfactants,
four nonphytotoxic oils, and a liquid fertilizer were each
combined with 0.5 lb ai/A terbacil in 35 gallons of water per acre.
Weed species tested include: redroot...
Studies were initiated to determine the response of two common
groundsel biotypes (Senecio vulgaris L. ) to several s-triazine herbicides.
Herbicides tested were: 2-chloro-4,6-bis(ethylamino)-striazine
s-triazine (atrazine) 2-(sec-butylamino)-4-(ethylamino)-6-methoxys-
triazine (GS-14254), 2, 4-bis(isopropylamino)-6-methoxy-striazine
s-triazine (terbutryn), and 2, 4-bis(isopropylamino)-6-
methylthio-s-triazine (prometryne). One biotype was much more
susceptible than the...
Herbicides are the primary method used to control exotic, invasive plants. This study evaluated restoration efforts applied to grasslands dominated by an invasive plant, sulfur cinquefoil, 6 yr after treatments. Of the five herbicides we evaluated, picloram continued to provide the best control of sulfur cinquefoil over 6 yr. We...
We examined growth and biomass allocation of individual Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) and red alder (Alnus rubra Bong.) seedlings grown for 3 years under contrasting combinations of light and water. Alder growth was always greater than Douglas-fir. Full sunlight and soil moisture at field capacity caused large differences in...
The relationships among stand structure, Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) branch characteristics, and red alder (Alnus rubra (Bong.)) stem form attributes were explored for 10- to 15-year-old trees growing in mixed Douglas-fir – red alder plantations. Treatments included a range of species proportions, and red alder was either planted simultaneously...
