Site Preparation


  • Glyphosate applied in fall 2001
  • Site deep-tilled once followed by light cultivation


  • Glyphosate applied in spring 2002
  • Site deep-tilled twice and rocks removed                                           

Note: A pre-emergent herbicide was not incorporated into the soil at these sites, which led to severe levels of weed competition. It is recommended that a trifluralin-metrabuzin pre-emergent be applied during site preparation.
