Abstract
In trials begun in 1969, undiluted Tordon 101 (tri-isopropanolamine salts of 2,4-D + picloram) applied to freshly cut stumps at 1.5 ml/stump gave the most effective and economic control of bush species, mainly Acacia hockii and A. gerardii. The best results were obtained by firing the area first and chopping off the bush and the unpalatable tussock grass Cymbopogon afronardus at ground level. Very little regrowth occurred and grazing was improved six months after this treatment. See also WA 20, 1093.
