Selective Herbicides for Cultivation of Eucalyptus urograndis Clones

Table 3

Prevalence of ground cover by vegetation groups 30, 60, and 90 days after treatment (DAT) for herbicides applied over newly planted Eucalyptus urograndis rooted cuttings either prior to weed emergence (PRE) or after weed emergence (POST). Treatments were evaluated at the end of the month indicated for each application timing and periodic assessment.

LS-means within a column followed by the same letter for PRE or POST applications are not significantly different at using Fisher’s protected LSD. Means are for the two E. urograndis clones combined, since clone effects were not significant. LS-means for the complete weed control treatment were not included in LSD comparisons, because this treatment was applied repeatedly to provide as close to 100% bare ground as possible and was intended for comparisons of eucalyptus growth response to weed control.
2The effect of treatment was not significant for sedge cover at 30 DAT for PRE or POST applications and for vine cover at 90 DAT for POST applications.
3PRE weed emergence treatments were applied April 29, 2009. POST weed emergence treatments were applied May 30, 2009. Seedlings were planted April 14, 2009.
4A nonionic surfactant was added at 0.25% (v/v) for POST applications of imazapic and imazamox as directed by herbicide label.
