HERBICIDES FOR ROADSIDES

A GENERAL SURVEY IS MADE OF WEED CONTROL MEASURES ON WHICH THERE IS WIDESPREAD AGREEMENT. THE CHOICE OF A CHEMICAL SHOULD BE BASED ON SUCH CONSIDERATIONS AS THE SPECIES OF PLANTS, WHETHER HERBACEOUS OR WOOD; THE TIMING OF SPRAYING IN RELATION TO STAGE OF PLANT DEVELOPMENT; SPECIFIC SOIL AND CLIMATIC CONDITIONS; THE TIME OF YEAR OF TREATMENT; THE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF ADJACENT PLANTS; THE DEGREE OF CONTROL DESIRED; AND RELATIVE COSTS. SOME CHEMICALS MAY NOT KILL CERTAIN WEEDS, WHILE ON THE OTHER HAND SOME CHEMICALS MAY KILL DESIRABLE AND PROFITABLE VEGETATION. THE EFFECTS OF VARIOUS MODERN CHEMICALS ON DIFFERENT KINDS OF PLANTS ARE DESCRIBED. THE DISCUSSION CONCLUDES WITH A REVIEW OF THE DIFFERENT EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS OF VARIOUS KINDS OF WEED CONTROL.
