Mean A. philoxeroides shoot, root, and total dry weight were significantly reduced with
increasing herbicide application frequency (Figure 12). Triclopyr applications reduced mean
shoot weight below controls (3.722g + 0.285) after one application (2.257g + 0.285), and further
after two applications (0.341g + 0.285). Triclopyr applications reduced mean root weight below
controls (8.004g + 0.501) after one application (5.028g + 0.501), and further after two
applications (1.744g + 0.501). Triclopyr applications reduced mean total weight below controls
(11.726g + 0.735) after one application (7.284g + 0.735), and further after two applications
(2.085g + 0.735). A. philoxeroides mean cumulative stem length was significantly lower at the
