In a small-scale experiment in Uganda on the prevention of regeneration of trees felled as an anti-Glossina measure, drenching of the cut surface of stumps with undiluted Tordon 101 (a preparation containing 24% acid equivalent of 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) and 6% acid equivalent of Picloram (4-amino-3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid)) immediately after felling in June 1973 completely prevented shoot production over an observation period of 6 months on selected single marked stumps of trees of 9 species, including 3 species of Combretum and 2 of Acacia, and on any other stumps in the treated block. Nearly all stumps of trees felled in a control block showed some degree of regeneration.
