Herbicides for Weed Control in Tree Nurseries

Weed control during tree seedling production is of major importance. The Tree Nursery at Indian Head, Saskatchewan, Canada is currently using and testing herbicides to supplement the weed control program. Current uses include: chloroxuron for caragana sowings; chloroxuron or linuron for poplar and willow cuttings; trifluralin for Siberian elm sowings; linuron for choke cherry sowings, conifer transplants and all 1-0 deciduous crops. Promising treatments for future use include: EPTC for caragana sowings, chloramben for honeysuckle sowings, oxyfluorfen for poplar and willow cuttings and conifer sowings and linuron for green ash sowings.
