Hardwood Plantation Growth Following Weed Control Using Herbicides and Cultivation
Abstract:The effects of weed control using herbicides, cultivation, and a combination of herbicides and cultivation on the growth of sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) and green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica L.) plantations were examined. Two years of weed control using herbicides, either broadcast or in a five-foot band centered on the planted row, resulted in hardwood growth greater than or equal to that for two or three years of cultivation. Cultivation in combination with the herbicide band treatment yielded greater growth than cultivation or herbicide banding alone. No appreciable differences in seedling survival were noted among treatments on three studies where survival was assessed. South. J. Appl. For. 11(3):134-138.
