Description: The production and processing of forest products is a major industry in the State of Alabama. Current weed management and control practices rely heavily on the use of herbicides. With the risk of soil and water pollution associated with the use of some agricultural chemicals, the continuing use of such chemicals may become hazardous to human health. The need for developing integrated weed control methods with less use of herbicides can therefore not be overemphasized. One of the most aggressive competitive vegetations in southeastern forestlands is kudzu. The dominance of kudzu on over a million acres of forestland has made potentially valuable pine-producing land unusable. The most common control method is the use of chemicals.
