Dicamba and picloram, alone or in mixture with 2,4,5-T, were as effective as 2,4,5-T ester in killing hardwood brush. Of 15 formulations tested, at least one excelled 2,4,5-T on every species except dogwood. Many of the formulations dmaged loblolly pine, however, and therefore would not be suitable for pine release in forest management. Ammonium nitrate as a spray additive did not increase herbicidal effectiveness.
