Over-reliance on herbicides to manage weeds in agricultural crops has selected for herbicide resistant weeds globally. Harvest weed seed control (HWSC), an Australian developed and optimized paradigm of weed control, targets newly shed seed to reduce seed bank inputs. For species to be managed...
The effects of different vegetation control practices on tree-weed interactions and associated establishment and early tree growth were investigated in 1-3 year old hybrid poplar plantations containing Walker poplar (Populus deltoides x (P. laurifolia x P. nigra)) and its progeny Okanese poplar...
Hybrid poplar plantations have the potential to produce large amounts of biomass for the forest industry, but the young trees are sensitive to competition. This research attempted to quantify the influence of factors regulating competition in hybrid poplar plantations under four years old. The...
Integrating cultural weed management practices with herbicides is an important strategy to reduce wild oat (Avena fatua L.) populations in Alberta, Canada. The purpose of this thesis is to expand the knowledge on wild oat seed banks and seedling emergence within integrated weed management...
