Oxyfluorfen: An Effective Herbicide For Southern Pine Nurseries
Preemergence tests over a three-year period at 11 forest nurseries indicate that oxyfluorfen at 0.5 or 1.0 pound active ingredient per acre provides good weed control without causing injury to loblolly (Pinus taeda L.), slash (Pinus elliottii Engelm.), shortleaf (Pinus echinata Mill.), longleaf (Pinus palustris Mill.), Virginia (Pinus virginiana Mill.) and eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.). Postemergence applications of oxyfluorfen at 0.5 or 1.0 pound per acre controlled small succulent weeds at nine forest nurseries without injuring 4- to 8-week-old seedlings of loblolly and slash or 29-week-old longleaf.¹
