PLANNED VEGETATION CONTROL

The results it has obtained over the past years have shown the Kansas City Southern the value of careful and practical programming of vegetation control. Kansas City Southern's approach involves a combination of measures. Growing conditions throughout the railroad are extensively inspected, even to the point of cataloging growing conditions milepost-by-milepost. Vegetation control chemicals are applied within the limits of a fixed budget. Advantage is taken of a "one-pass" technique, even though varying rates of chemicals are applied to suit the different application and drift control needs.
