Grass control for radiata pine pinus radiata establishment on droughty sites



Grass control for radiata pine pinus radiata establishment on droughty sites



New Zealand Journal of Forestry 27(2): 259-276



Survival and growth of radiata pine (P. radiata D. Don) seedlings in the warm dry summer climate of Canterbury [New Zealand] are markedly influenced by competition from grasses and other herbaceous weeds. Weed control not only produced an immediate increase in growth but also had a positive effect on tree growth for the following 8 yr. Site improvement by either ripping or weed control had a marked effect on tree growth. A combination of the 2 further increased survival, height growth, and total basal area. Further work on the effects of fertilizer application in the presence or absence of weed competition indicated that failure to achieve good weed control will result in an increase in weed competition and may reduce the survival and growth of radiata pine seedlings. Broadcast vegetation control resulted in better survival and growth of tree seedlings. The Spot Gun applicator may be used with hexazinone. Best results can be achieved with the flat fan nozzle.
