Description: Until recently chemical weed control technology in forestry nurseries was limited primarily to soil fumigation, a very expensive and laborous weed control procedure. Herbicides for preemergence application have been registered and are currently being used to control many annual weeds. Removal of perennial weeds such as nutsedge, (Cyperus spp.) bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L) Pers.] and johnsongrass [Sorghum halepense (L) Pers.] is still accomplished by hand labor which is very expensive and increasingly difficult to obtain. Our objective was to evaluate and/or develop equipment to apply non-selective herbicides selectively in forest nursery stock
