Aerial Application of Herbicides for Control of Sand SagebrushSingle aerial applications of 2,4-D; 2,4,5-T; and a 1:1 mixture of the two gave excellent control of sand sagebrush at some locations in western Nebraska. Repeat applications were necessary for best results to kill regrowth the following year. Silvex consistently gave excellent control from a single application.
Vegetational Responses Following Winged Elm and Oak Control in OklahomaTotal herbage production increased significantly following 92 to 100 percent control of winged elm, oak, and hickory trees. This increase, however, was mostly in less desirable grass and forb plants, even on reseeded plots. Natural recovery of desirable grasses after brush control on this type in Oklahoma appears to be a slow process. Reseeding may speed up forage plant establishment, but more research is needed.
