Rain after 2,4,5-T application - effect on gorse control

J. M. Balneaves

Trial results suggest that the occurrence of heavy rain only 5 minutes after the application of the butyl ester of 2,4,5-T to gorse (Ulex europaeus) does not influence the herbicidal effect. When rain fell, 10, 15, 30, or 60 minutes after spray application, control of gorse was better than when there was a 24-hour time-lag.
