T HIS paper reports some preliminary tests with selective herbicides for control of weeds and brush on forest ranges in northeastern California. The results are encouraging. Herbicides were sprayed on depleted range areas dominated by big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata), black sagebrush (A. arbuscula), silver sagebrush (A. cana), green manzanita (Arctostaphylos patula), and buttercup (Ranunculus alismaefolius and R. occidentalis). Control of undesirable plants was most successful on areas with…

Controlling Big Sagebrush with Growth Regulators.

The information gained from spraying big sagebrush with 4 formulations at 1, 2, and 3 pounds of acid equivalent per acre on 9 dates during the months of April, May, June, and July, 1950 is presented.


On foothill rangelands of the Intermountain area it is a common practice to remove big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) prior to seeding grasses. This practice has proved to be successful in many

Effects of a Non‐Selective Arsenical Herbicide on Plant Biomass and Community Structure in a Fescue Meadow

Community structure and standing crop biomass of vegetation were affected similarly in a fescue meadow by single applications of sodium cacodylate and by severe heat stress, and this treatment regime caused sustained simplification of community structure and reductions in biomass throughout the growing season.

Control of Big Sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) with Pelleted Tebuthiuron

Ground applications of pelleted tebuthiuron at 0.6 kg ai/ha (20% formulation) reduced big sagebrush.
