Its effectiveness in controlling many woody and herbaceour weeds at application rates tolerated by pines provides foresters with a selective vegetation management tool. Hexazinone is an environmentally safe chemical because lt is low in toxicity, is degraded readily, does not bioaccumulate; and does not impair water quality.
