    Hexuinone has proven to be a useful herbicide in southern forestry. 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. It is registered for use In pine reforestation for site preparation, release from woody and herbaceour weeds, individual hardwood stem control and herbaceous weed control. Formulations labeled for forestry use include a water-soluble powder (90 percent active ingredient), a water-disersible liquid and free-flowing granules (5 and 10-percent active ingredient.
