Title: Cost Effectiveness of Leafy Spurge Control During a Five-Year Management Program
Author: Messersmith, Calvin G.; Lym, Rodney G.
Description: The importance of leafy spurge control on log-term land values is difficult to access, but short-term returns can be estimated by measuring changes in forage production and grazing capacity following leafy spurge control. The purpose of the study discussed in this article was to evaluate several herbicides for leafy spurge control, influence on forage production and their cost effectiveness. the materials and methods of the experiment are outlined along with the results and the arising discussion. Several long-term management alternatives provide a choice of herbicides, duration of acceptable control and forage production in those areas infested with leafy spurge. The effectiveness of early leafy spurge infested land will always have a lower value than land that's not infested.
