Title: Herbicides for Forest Plantations

Author: Hadley, H. H.; Briscoe, C. B.;

Date: 1966

Source: Research Note ITF-RN-6. Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico: USDA-Forest Service, Institute of Tropical Forestry

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: MSMA, sodium cacodylate, diquat, aminotriazole, paraquat + surfactant, 2,4-0 amine, ametryne, and picram were tested for use as herbicides in forest plantations. MSMA gave best weed control per dollar of her bicide. Picram also gave good control on dry sites, although more expensive than MSMA, but damaged planted trees. When herbicides were applied during or just before a hard rain, none was satisfactory but paraquat was best. Complete control of weeds by cont act herbicides cannot exceed about two months, because within that time new plants replace those killed.

Keywords: herbicides, picram, MSMA, sodium cacodylate, diquat, aminotriazole, paraquat, amine, ametryne
