    Description

    In 1959 and 1962 the Minnesota Division of Forestry and the North Central Forest Experiment Station established a series of tests to determine the effectiveness of several herbicides in maintaining firebreaks free of vegetation. The primary objectives of these tests were to determine: (1) how long one application of soil sterilant can keep firebreaks satisfactorily free of vegetation and (2) how much chemical firebreak maintenance will cost. The tests continue a study on chemical firebreak maintenance which began in 1955.
