May 26, 1994 uite Wilcox, Cca-ag about that time again: season. a good time to review and "rules of thumb" for control. Some have years because of research, products and Though nature some- s makes exceptions to our rules the following are based demonstrations and Broadcut or hand.treat? * For sites with less than 150 per acre, individual plant usually is more cost-ef- treatment. * For sites with more than plants acre, broadcast ,is more economi- * Individual plant treatment than broad- the same type of the same herbicides. * Foliar applications -- broadcast or hand-sprayed hare dependent on proper for success than basal Iollar application * In foliar applications, the * Among the recommended -- broadcast or plant - the most effec- pray solutions contain *Foliar conditions The time period witl vary by or Conservation Service for * For foliar applications, when soil tempera- are above 75 degrees F at a 18 inches.

Don't spray when leaves appear damaged, drought-stressed or immature (light green). Avoid spraying un- even-aged leaves (some light, some dark green). Wait until all foliage is mature. Basal treatment *Optimum conditions for low volume basal or streamline basal applications (about 25% Remedy herbicide, 75% diesel): anytime during the growing season when the plant has mature green leaves. *Trees with slick (smooth) bark are more susceptible to basal treatment than those with rough bark. Slick bark is easier for the herbicide solution to penetrate. *Mesquite becomes less sus- ceptible to basal treatment as stem diameter increases. Expectations Given the many variables in- valved, expecting 100% mesquite control from a single treatment probably is not realistic. In its con- trol ratings of various brush treat- menus, the Texas Agricultural Ex- tension service (TAEX) calls plant mortality of 76% or more "very high." The ratings were deter- mined from research and result demonstration data and from ob- servations of commercial applica- tions. Though they're no guarantee, the ratings represent the control generally obtained when the treat- ment has been properly applied under optimum conditions, the rating categories and degree of plant kill are: Very High Control rating has 76-100% of plants killed; High control rating has 56- 75% of plants killed; Moderate control rating has 36-55% of plants killed; Low control rating has 0-35% of plants killed. Some observations from the TAEX recommendations and ratings: *Most recommended in- dividual plant treatments for mesquite have control ratings of "moderate" to "very high". *All recommended mesquite basal treatments with Remedy her- bicide have "very high" (76% ) control ratings. *All recommended in- dividual plant treatments with Reclaim herbicide on mesquite alone have 'very high" (76% +) control ratings. *Recommended broadcast treatments for mesquite have con- trol ratings ranging from "lay?' to high". *All recommended broad- cast treatments with Reclaim have ;M Clarenben ews "moderate" (36-55%) to "high" (56- 75%) control ratings. What does the degree of con- trol mean? *When 2,4,5-T treatments delivered about 25% root kill, ranchers often sprayed again when the mesquite grew back to pre- treatment density in about five years. *If 60% root kill can be ob- tained, retreatment may not be needed for 10 years or more. *On a South Texas ranch, forage response was monitored for seven years after spraying yielded 66% root kill of mesquite. Annual carrying capacity increases ranged from 8 animal units to 80 animal units per 1,000 acres, varying with rainfall. Increases averaged 67 animal units per 1,000 acres for the first two years and 44 animal units for the sixth and seventh years after treatment. Club Meeting Held The Martin Quilting Club Met in the home of Eunice Leeper, May 19th. One quilt was finished and lunch was enjoyed at the noon meal. Members present were Mary Lee Noble, Melba Ris- Icy, Ann Noble, Hazel Edens, Mary Banisler, Marie MeCracken, Flos- sie Reynalds, Pauline Koontz, and host Eunice l.eper. Safety Tips Offered rl'ooper L.B. Snider with the Department of Public Safety says, "In Texas, Memorial Day weekend signals the start of the summertime season for vacation travel". There will be increased dangers to motorists because so many people are anous to "get away from it all". Each of us should remember that due to heavier traf- tic, the potential of having a traffic accident on any given holiday weekend is greater than regular weekend; therefore we should ad- just our driving habits for the extra crowded highways this Memorial Day weekend. All available troopers will be out with emphasis on intoxicated drivers, speeders and other serious violations. Snider suggests that motorists use preventive measures such as being rested and alert, allow safety space with other traf- tic, using headlights day and night to see and be seen and taking ad- vantage of safety belts. Snider also advised if you consume alcoholic drinks to have a designated non- drinking driver if you must travel Preventive measures include a pre- trip check of the vehicle and driver. Vehicles should be checked for defective or worn belts, hoses, cool- tug systems, fluid levels and proper fire air pressure and treadwear. With Texas motorists driving friendly by using these and other common sense methods, this could be a wonderfully memorable Memorial Day weekend. Remem- ber, drive "Texas Friendly" and enjoy the holiday.
