Abstract/Contents:"Saltcedar, introduced to the United States during the early 1800s, has become naturalized along many waterways of the western United States. It has been implicated in lowering water tables, reducing wildlife diversity, increasing soil salinity, and displacing native plant species in infested areas. Traditional mechanical and chemical control methods have often proven to be ineffective or too costly. The BurchTM Wet-Blade Mower may provide effective control at reduced cost by applying a computer regulated amount of herbicide to the cut surface of plants. Concentrating herbicide on the target may reduce application rates and exposure to non-target species. In the spring of 1999, a study was established to test the BurchTM Wet-Blade Mower for effective control of saltcedar. Imazapyr was applied at 0.32 lb ae/A alone and tank mixed with glyphosate and trichlopyr at 2 lb ai/A and 1.5 lb ae/A; respectively, along with a mowing only and untreated control. Each treatment was applied in June and August to determine timing differences. First year results indicate that no treatment significantly reduced density (P>0.05) although the fall applied treatments killed and injured some plants. Second year results will be obtained in 2001. A subsequent study to compare resprout to whole-plant treatment was initiated during the spring of 2000. Treatments (0.25, 0.5, and 1 lb ae/A imazapyr, mow only, and untreated control) were applied in August to either resprouts or entire plants. Treatments will be evaluated in August 2001."
