Herbicides for Southern Pine Seedbeds
Abstract:Prior to 1970, nursery managers relied primarily on methyl bromide fumigation, mineral spirits, and hand-weeding for weed control. Since 1970, registration of herbicides for use in forest nurseries has been facilitated by tests conducted by the Auburn University Southern Forest Nursery Management Cooperative. Various herbicides can be applied prior to sowing, just after sowing, or after emergence of the pine seedlings. It has been estimated that for all nurseries in the South, use of these herbicides has reduced weed control costs by over two million dollars per year. This paper describes some of the herbicides that have been registered for use in southern pine nurseries. South. J. Appl. For. 10:152-57, Aug. 1986.
