Abstract Noncropland such as levees, roadsides, field borders, fencerows, and wildlife areas are vulnerable to weed invasion. Many sites have undergone frequent human disturbance, such as manipulation from surrounding land uses, and lack competitive, desirable vegetation. This study addressed the importance of revegetation in an integrated weed management program including revegetation for noncrop areas. The study evaluated 14 cool-season perennial grasses (seven native species and eight… Expand
Evaluating winter annual grass control and native species establishment following applications of indaziflam on rangeland
TLDR
Results indicate that the multiyear IWAG control provided by indaziflam can aid in desirable species reestablishment through drill seeding or response of the remnant plant community. Expand
Herbicide-Assisted Restoration of Great Basin Sagebrush Steppe Infested With Medusahead and Downy Brome
TLDR
Over the course of the study, imazapic provided the best management of both invasive annual grasses while increasing native forb cover, indicating that several chemical options can give short-term control of downy brome and medusahead. Expand
Native Grass Establishment following Application of Pyridine Herbicides
TLDR
Application of aminopyralid can safely be used to control susceptible invasive species preceding grass species establishment, with a safety margin similar to or slightly better than that with the pyridine standards clopyralids or picloram. Expand
Improving Restoration of Exotic Annual Grass-Invaded Rangelands Through Activated Carbon Seed Enhancement Technologies
TLDR
Results indicate that HPPs and, to a lesser extent, activated carbon–coated seed have the potential to further enhance a single-entry revegetation program by providing land practitioners with the ability to apply imazapic at rates necessary for weed control while minimizing nontarget plant injury. Expand
Integration of Prescribed Burning, Aminopyralid, and Reseeding for Restoration of Yellow Starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis)-Infested Rangeland
TLDR
The results indicate that a January or March aminopyralid treatment integrated with a native perennial grass drill seeding program in January offers the greatest probability of both successful yellow starthistle control and perennial grass establishment. Expand
Forage seeding in rangelands increases production and prevents weed invasion
TLDR
Perennial grasses that persisted with greater than 50% cover were Berber orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata), Flecha tall fescue (Lolium arundinaceum) and several varieties of hardinggrass (Phalaris aquatica L., Perla koleagrass, Holdfast, Advanced AT). Expand
Suppression of the Ornamental Invasive Mexican Petunia (Ruellia simplex) by Native Species
TLDR
Results showed that number of Mexican petunia individuals and biomass decreased when seeded together with either pinebarren goldenrod or a mix of four native species (bushy bluestem, common rush, redtop panicgrass, and pinebarrel goldenrod), which suggests that revegetation with these native species could effectively compete with and suppress Mexican Petunia in field conditions.

Assessing Restoration and Management Needs for Ecosystems Invaded by Exotic Annual Bromus Species
Invasive annual grass research and management in arid and semiarid ecosystems of the Western United States (USA) have historically focused on reducing weed abundance as opposed to ecosystemExpand
Canada Thistle (Cirsium arvense) Response to Clipping and Seeding of Competitive Grasses
TLDR
A greenhouse study was conducted to test the effectiveness of clipping (to simulate field mowing) andgrass seeding as alternatives for Canada thistle control, and the effects of clipping and grass seeding on Canada thistles growth, which were evaluated using 14 unique treatments applied to pottedCanada thistle and grass plants. Expand
Assessing the Ability of Durum Wheat-Thinopyrum ponticum Recombinant Lines to Suppress Naturally Occurring Weeds under Different Sowing Densities
TLDR
The competitive ability of two durum wheat-Thinopyrum ponticum recombinant lines, carrying effective resistance genes towards main rust diseases and enhanced yield-related traits in their alien chromosome segments, was investigated in comparison with that of a widely grown commercial cultivar, finding R5 was the most weed-suppressive genotype, whereas Tirex was the least competitive.

Tolerance of Several Perennial Grasses to Imazapic1
TLDR
The level of tolerance of perennial forage grasses to imazapic depended on herbicide dose and perhaps environmental differences between years, and a dose– response model provided a good fit for grass species biomass and height data. Expand
Weed Control as a Rationale for Restoration: The Example of Tallgrass Prairie
TLDR
The cumulative effects of restoration on weed populations 7 yr after tallgrass prairie restoration on a Minnesota sand plain showed that site preparation plus prairie seed addition had reduced weed biomass, weed stem number, and the stem numbers of four individual weed species, consistent with the hypothesis that restoration may limit weed invasion by decreasing resource availability.

TLDR
Of the perennial grasses adapted to these sites, those which initiated growth earliest, maintained some growth through winter months, and matured earliest were the best competitors. Expand

TLDR
The principles of plant ecology must be integrated with the science of weed management to develop strategies that take advantage of basic plant responses in weed management systems for agronomic crops. Expand

TLDR
This preliminary study suggests that succession from spotted knapweed to late-seral blue bunch wheatgrass community may be accelerated by altering resource availability by removing nutrients from the soil. Expand

Possibility for using restoration technology in controlling nonindigenous species by influencing hydroperiod, photo-period, thermoperiod, edaphic conditions, and availability of biological control agents so as to produce ecological conditions that are inhospitable to invaders is discussed. Expand
