Broom Snakeweed Control with Tebuthiuron

  title={Broom Snakeweed Control with Tebuthiuron},
  author={Ronald E. Sosebee and William E. Boyd and Conrad Scott Brumley},
  journal={Journal of Range Management},
Broom snakeweed was effectively controlled for at least 3 years with 0.6 kg a.i./ha (80% wettable powder) tebuthiuron on the Southern High Plains. Total herbage production decreased following broom snakeweed control, but grass yield generally increased when the snakeweed was removed. Broom snakeweed control was not affected by application time during the year. However, grass production was significantly reduced for three growing seasons by application of tebuthiuron in May. Grass yield was not…

Broom Snakeweed (Gutierrezia sarothrae): Toxicology, Ecology, Control, and Management
An up-to-date review of broom snakeweed toxicology, seed ecology, population cycles, succession, and management is presented, finding that proper grazing management to maintain competitive grasses is essential for suppression of this invasive weed.
Broom snakeweed (Gutierrezia sarothrae) Population Change in Central New Mexico: Implications for Management and Control☆
The economics of chemical broom snakeweed control were most strongly related to the rate of snakeweed reinvasion on treated areas and to the probability of natural die-off if infested areas were not sprayed.
Controlling shrubs in the arid Southwest with tebuthiuron.
Tebuthiuron [N-(5{ 1, 1 -dimethylethyl]l,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)-N,N'-dimethylurea] is effective for chemical control of many woody plants.
Response of three shrub communities in southeastern Idaho to spring-applied tebuthiuron.
For sites with similar soil and environmental conditions, the 1.1 kg ha-' (40P) treatment should give sufficient control of sagebrush to allow for significant increases in total grass and forb production.
Insects associated with broom snakeweed (Xanthocephalum sarothrae) and threadleaf snakeweed (Xanthocephalum microcephala) in west Texas and eastern New Mexico.
Both broom snakeweed and threadleaf snakeweed are toxic to cattle, sheep, goats, and other animals and Andres (1971) suggested that the conservation and augmentation of endemic phytophagous insects are feasible and advantageous in many cases.
Growth of Gutierrezia sarothrae seedlings in the field.
Root and shoot biomass growth was compuable from March to July, but shoot growth exceeded that by roots for the rest of the growing season, suggesting rapid root development is not the primary mechanism for colonizing disturbed areas.
Long-term tebuthiuron content of grasses and shrubs on semiarid rangelands
Perennial plants collected from 5 north-central Arizona semiarid locations were assayed for tebuthiuron [N-5-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl-N,N'-dimethylurea] and its metabolites using gas
Broom Snakeweed Increase and Dominance in Big Sagebrush Communities
Broom snakeweed (Gutierrezia sarothrae (Pursh) Britt. & Rusby) is a native sub-shrub that is widely distributed on rangelands of western North America. It often increases to near monocultures
Destructive and Potentially Destructive Insects of Snakeweed in Western Texas and Eastern New Mexico and a Dioristic Model of their Biotic Interactions
The relationships of the principal destructive and potentially destructive insects associated with Xanthocephalum microcephalum (DC) Shinners (threadleaf snakeweed) and XanthOcephalum sarothrae (Pursh) Shiners (broom snakeweed), have been identified and depicted with a dioristic model and a system analysis reveals a complex picture of insect-host plant interactions as well as potential insectinsect interactions.
Winter forb control for increased grass yield on sandy rangeland.
Four separate studies evaluated several herbicides for reducing competition from overwintering weeds on sandy rangeland in west Texas, finding picloram more effectively controlled targeted forbs while trichlopyr suppressed sand shinnery oak (Quercus havardii Rydb.) more effectively.


Vegetative Response to Chemical Control of Broom Snakeweed on a Blue Grama Range
