Vegetation Cover Response and Second-Year Loblolly and Slash Pine Response Following Bedding and Pre- and Post-Plant Herbicide Applications in Florida
Vegetation control differed among treatments. DB improved control of woody shrubs over single bedding alone, but increased herbaceous cover in the first growing season. The increase in herbaceous cover following DB accounts for the relatively small gain in second-year pine height (0.2 ft) for DB compared to LB. Pre-plant herbicide treatments following early bedding improved control of both woody shrubs and first-year herbaceous vegetation. Pre-plant herbicide treatments also shifted the composition of herbaceous vegetation towards less competitive species. HC improved control of herbaceous plants, and lowest first-year herbaceous cover was achieved with the combination of HC with pre-plant herbicide treatments. South. J. Appl. For. 25(2):75–83.
