The Persistence of Triclopyr and Its Pyridinol Metabolite in A Coastal British Columbia StreamMicroform - 1987
Triclopyr (Garlon 4TM) is a selective post-emergent herbicide used for the control of unwanted broadleaf vegetation in agriculture and woody plants in forestry. In the coastal forest areas of British Columbia, it has the potential to replace the phenoxy herbicides 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T for conifer release programs. However, Garlon 4TM is presently not registered for forestry use in Canada. Most of the data on environmental fate submitted for the registration evaluation of this herbicide in Canada was produced in the United States where conditions are warmer and dryer than in Western Canada, particularly in B.C. Therefore a study was conducted in 1984 to determine the persistence of this herbicide and its metabolites in a coastal B.C. stream. A literature review was also conducted.
