Title: Evaluation of Four Herbicides and Tillage for Weed Control on 1-0 Planted Tree Seedlings

Author: Seifert, John R.; Woeste, Keith;

Date: 2002

Source: Northern Journal of Applied Forestry 19(3):101-105

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Azafenidin, sulfometuron, pendimethalin, and simazine were applied alone and in combination to 1-0 seedlings of nine hardwood and one conifer species. Percent bare ground at 30, 60, and 90 days, diameter and height growth of the seedlings were determined for 16 herbicide treatments, tillage and a control. Azafenidin applications alone and in combination with sulfometuron resulted in about 85% bare ground 90 days post-treatment. There were significant differences for diameter, height growth, and volume among the treatments for every species. No single treatment ranked best for all species, but comparison of the mean ranks of the treatments for all species indicated that azafenidin and pendimethalin resulted in the most growth. Azafenidin-treated seedlings also had the greatest volume at the end of the season.
