Abstract

Saltcedar is an invasive shrub or tree found along stream banks and waterways throughout the western United States. Research was conducted on saltcedar stands located on the Cimarron National Grasslands near Elkhart, KS. Saltcedar was cut during the dormant season. Spring applied treatments included an untreated check and herbicides containing either glyphosate, triclopyr, or imazapyr. All untreated plants resprouted. All herbicides provided greater than 90% defoliation 3 months after treatment (MAT), except those cut-stump treatments containing glyphosate. At 15 MAT, glyphosate imazapyr (5% 5%), imazapyr (10%), triclopyr (5 and 10%), and undiluted triclopyr as Pathfinder II provided ≥ 80% mortality.
