Abstract

Recent advances in herbicide formulations and application techniques for woody invasive plant management

Author: Dr. Stephen Enloe, University of Florida

Woody invasive plant management is often a challenging prospect in Florida natural areas. Here we discuss our research on recent advances in triclopyr formulations that has resulted in effective woody plant management with significantly less herbicide used. Additionally, a new approach (incision point application) with aminopyralid or aminocyclopyrachlor is changing the paradigm of hack and squirt for land managers. These tools and techniques will be discussed in the context of efficacy, efficiency, and environmental stewardship. Bring your questions!!!
