Selective Herbicides for Cultivation of Eucalyptus urograndis Clones

Table 4

ANOVA/ANCOVA1   values for the percentage of Eucalyptus urograndis trees showing no or minor injury symptoms at 30, 60, and 90 days after treatment (DAT), for survival and stem volume index (SVI) at the end of the first growing season, and for five herbicides applied at two rates and two application timings over newly planted rooted cuttings of two E. urograndis clones.

ANCOVA was conducted for SVI; ANOVA was conducted for the other variables.
2Slight foliar chlorosis, slight foliar necrosis, and slight defoliation were considered minor injury symptoms, whereas any observed fasciculation, lateral shoot dieback, and leader dieback were not regarded as minor.
3Stem volume index (SVI) = ; GLD5 = outside bark stem diameter 5 cm above the ground; = live stem height.
4PRE weed emergence or POST weed emergence.
5Flumioxazin, imazamox, imazapic, oxyfluorfen, or sulfometuron methyl.
6Rate = low or high relative rate.
7Two ArborGen proprietary transgenetic FTE (frost tolerant eucalyptus) clones.
