HERBICIDE STUDIES IN LANDSCAPE PLANTINGS

LANDSCAPE PLANTING POSES SEVERAL DIFFICULT PROBLEMS WHEN CONSIDERING THE USE OF HERBICIDES. THE PLANTINGS TO BE COVERED ARE OFTEN IRREGULARLY SHAPED, AND ACCURATE DETERMINATION OF THE AREA INVOLVED IS DIFFICULT. ALSO, THE AREAS ARE OFTEN SMALL, AND ACCURATE APPLICATION OF SMALL AMOUNTS OF HERBICIDES IS DIFFICULT, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE, WITH PRESENT DAY EQUIPMENT. FURTHER, MANY HERBICIDES THAT CAN BE USED ON WOODY ORNAMENTALS WILL DAMAGE TURF. FINALLY, MANY PLANTINGS CONTAIN SUCH A WIDE RANGE OF PLANT MATERIAL IT IS OFTEN DIFFICULT TO FIND AN EFFECTIVE HERBICIDE THAT IS LABELED FOR ALL THE PLANTS. THE PHYSICAL PROBLEMS OF ACCURATE APPLICATION OF HERBICIDES TO LANDSCAPE PLANTINGS HAVE BEEN PARTIALLY SOLVED IN THE RESULTS OF PREVIOUS RESEARCH REPORTED IN JHRP PROGRESS REPORTS BY LANPHEAR AND SPANGLER. THE PRESENT REPORT SUPPLEMENTS THEIR WORK. /AUTHOR/
