AbstractCreosotebush was sprayed with various formulations of 2, 4-D and 2,4,5-T, and with picloram and fuel oil, using ground spray equipment, on the University's Agricultural Experiment Station ranch, from 1962 to 1966. Results of spraying regrowth of mowed creosotebush at different seasons varied with herbicide used. With 2,4,5-T ester, highest kills were obtained in late summer, and lowest kills were obtained in spring and fall. Early summer results were not significantly different from those of the other seasons. Picloram gave lowest kills in spring, highest kills in fall. The intermediate-level early and late summer kills did not differ significantly from either spring or fall kills. Fuel oil gave lowest kills in spring, highest kills in fall, and intermediate-level kills in early and late summer.
