Spotgun applied hexazinone release of red pine pinus resinosa from quaking aspen populus tremuloides competition and residue persistence in soil



Spotgun applied hexazinone release of red pine pinus resinosa from quaking aspen populus tremuloides competition and residue persistence in soil



Weed Technology 4(2): 371-375



Weed control and red pine release by spotgun-applied hexazinone in a northern Ontario [Canada] plantation were evaluated 3 yr after treatment, while hexazinone residues and lateral movement in the sandy loam soil were determined 1 yr after treatment. Hexazinone, grid pattern spot applied at 480 mg ai/spot, approximating 1.6 kg ai/ha, resulted in 88% quaking aspen stem dieback and variable suppression of white birch [Betula papyrifera] and pin cherry [Prunus pensylvanica]. The height and basal diam of treated red pine were 131 and 150% of control, respectively, after 3 yr. Hexazinone residues were reduced to 1% at the treated spot and did not move laterally beyond 0.5 m, 1 yr after treatment. Detection of small amounts of metabolites A and B (0.2 and 0.3%) indicated the non-cumulative degradation of hexazinone in soils.
