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.
