Abstract

The efficacy of adding Oust® XP to woody release treatments was evaluated on second-year pine plantations in Texas, Mississippi, and South Carolina. Overall, the residual control of herbaceous weeds on these sites was excellent the growing season following application. Pine height and diameter growth was evaluated for 5 years following application. Generally, the treatments of high rates of Arsenal AC alone and all treatments with Oust® XP resulted in significantly improved height and diameter growth.
