Integrated shrub management in semi-arid woodlands of eastern Australia: ground and aerial application of defoliant to shrubs regenerating after disturbance

Noble, J C; Muller, W J; MacLeod, N D; Bodulovic, Z; Jones, Peter G; Wood, Jeffrey


This paper describes experiments undertaken at several sites in semi-arid woodlands of eastern Australia to determine if chemicals applied either on the ground or from the air reduce the density of shrubs regenerating after disturbance. Ground-spraying of RoundupĀ® in the autumn was more effective than spring application in defoliating shrubs, especially 2-year-old coppice growth. Spraying of Roundup with a hand-held boom at 0.5 up to 2.5 kg glyphosate/ha identified rates to be used for boom...[Show more]
