AbstractFourteen years (1956 to 1970) of chemical control for rubber and green rabbitbrush using the ester forms of 2,4-D produced consistent control, ranging from 85 to 98% on rubber rabbitbrush. The amount of new twig growth, soil moisture, rate and methods of application, total seasonal twig growth, and subsequent drought conditions proved critical for effective kills. Selective kills were achieved by manipulation of these factors. Site potential and response to changes that result from chemical control must be recognized. "Drainage Effect" is a complex of thermal drafts, topography, and soil differences that can adversely influence the percentage of rabbitbrush control achieved.
