Onaqui Sagebrush Mow Subplots

The mow treatment was implemented to thin sagebrush and encourage understory growth. Mowing took place at Onaqui in the fall of 2006 after baseline data were collected. Plateau pre-emergence herbicide was crossed with the mowing treatment on half of the subplots to control cheatgrass. The images below show two subplots from 2006-2009, one where Plateau was not used and one where Plateau was sprayed at a rate of 6oz per acre after treatment.
