Managing weeds in planted forests

In a new Scion video, Dr Carol Rolando talks about recent research looking at managing weeds in planted forests.

Scion scientists, led by Dr Carol Rolando, have confirmed that most effective weed management treatment is the current industry standard of a combination of terbuthylazine and hexazinone and that the risks to the environment from these two herbicides are low. Both herbicides were recently re-assessed by Forest Stewardship Council and have been removed from the highly hazardous list. A 4 ½ minute video discussing some of the issues around weed control in planted forests is available below.
