Title: Use of Sulfometuron in Hybrid Poplar Energy Plantations
Author: Netzer, Daniel A.;

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)
Description: Reports that low rates of sulfometuron, 70 grams per hactare (1 ounce product or 0.75 ounces active ingredient per acre), applied when hybrid poplars are completely dormant, can provide season-long weed control and increase hybrid poplar growth. If plantation access is not possible before growth activity begins in the spring, late fall application of this herbicide may be best.
Keywords: Intensive culture, weed control, herbicide, short rotation, biomass, dormant season.
