Abstract

Your success in applying a forestry herbicide depends on serveral critical factors. First, you must accurately identify the weed species to be controlled. Then you must select a herbicide that effectively controls theses species. Moreover, the crop tree must be resistant to, or protected from, the herbicide. Weather conditions must be favorable, both before and after application. You must also consider the environmental impact and potential effects on your neighbors' property. Then you must carefully apply the herbicide at the proper rate. Just as importantly, you must apply the treatment during the optimum time of the year.
