Figure 4. Introduction of a competitor species into pots containing herbicide treated A.
Greenhouse temperature was maintained at 220C. Sufficient lighting to keep plants from entering
senescence was not available until January 10th 2011, after which plants were grown under a
14/10 light/dark cycle. Triclopyr amine, a dicot-selective herbicide under the trade name
Renovate3 (Renovate, SePRO, Carmel, IN 46032) was used for herbicide treatments. Triclopyr
was applied at a rate of 3.42 kg ae ha 1 using a Solo 425 15.14L pressurized back-pack
sprayer. AQUA-KINGPlus (Estes Inc., Wichita Falls, TX 76301) a non-ionic surfactant was
added at a rate of 0.25% of spray solution. Forty-three days after A. philoxeroides was planted,
the first round of herbicide application was administered. To prevent cross contamination from
herbicide drift, treatment containers randomly selected for herbicide treatment were removed
from the greenhouse and sprayed outside (Figure 2). Spraying took approximately 15 minutes.
To eliminate the possibility of herbicide transferring to neighboring plants through plant to plant
contact, treated plants remained outside for one hour to allow the spray solution to evaporate.
