Comparison of Herbicide Treatments for Controlling Common Coastal Plain Flatwoods Species
Abstract:A study was conducted to identify optimum picloram-triclopyr combinations for use on the following flatwoods species: gallberry (Ilex glabra [L.] Gray), saw palmetto (Serenoa repens [Bartram] Small), vacciniums (Vaccinium spp.), waxmyrtle (Myrica cerifera L.), fetterbush (Lyonia lucida [Lam.] K. Koch), staggerbush (Lyonia ferruginea [Water] Nutall), and sweetbay (Magnolia virginiana L). More than 70% control of gallberry, saw palmetto, vacciniums, waxmyrtle, and sweetbay was obtained with 4.0 lb a.e./ac of triclopyr alone. At least 1.0 lb of picloram combined with 1.0 lb or more of triclopyr was required to achieve 70% or greater control of fetterbush and staggerbush. The picloram formulation including 2,4-D (Tordon 101®) was more effective than the formulation without 2,4-D (Tordon K®) on saw palmetto, vacciniums and waxmyrtle.¹ South. J. Appl. For. 15(4):187-193.
