An Evaluation of Herbicides for Post-Emergence Use in Short Rotation Coppice

The objective of this paper was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a range of herbicides and mixtures of herbicides, with both contact and residual activity, for the post-emergence control of weeds in newly planted willow short rotation coppice (SRC). One of the most common causes of SRC crop failure is severe competition from weeds which have not been adequately controlled by the pre-emergence herbicide application, or even in circumstances where adverse weather or workload have prevented this application. There are very few herbicides approved for post-emergence use, and they are usually weed-specific, for example, thistles or some grass weeds.
