DescriptionHerbicides can be an effective, necessary, and environmentally sound tool for the control of weeds and brush on rangelands (Young and others 1981b). As a result, chemical control is a widely used means of removing unwanted or noxious plants from range and other pasture lands. Selective plant control by mechanical, biological, fire, or manual means should also be considered but is not always a satisfactory alternative to chemical control.
