Abstract

The most important single factor in successful shelter-belt establishment in the Northern Great Plains is elimination of weed and grass competition. While removal if competing vegetation between the tree rows can readily be accomplished with machinery, removal of such vegetation in the tree rows is a different problem. Hand hoeing is effective, but involves a great deal of time and labor. No mechanical means of removing competing vegetation from the row has proven entirely satisfactory.
