Abstract: Effective weed control in young deciduous plantations is often prescribed to enhance survivability and growth (Bey and others 1975). Chemical weed control often employs broadcast, strip, and spot applications that markedly affect the ground surface area treated. Our study investigates the effect of four levels of treated surface area of a tank mix of glyphosate and simazine and their potential accumulation in the soil on the growth and survival of black walnut (Juglans nigra L.), white oak (Quercus alba L.), and white ash (Fraxinus americana L.) saplings.
