From the Conclusion ... 'Quail enthusiasts who have pine forestland have an opportunity to improve quail habitat and improve pine growth and productivity by using imazapyr to control competitive vegetation [see Table 4 -- Wildlife Habitat Enhancement with Imazapyr]. Other game species like white-tailed deer, wild turkey and rabbits can also benefit from the improvement in food supplies following vegetation control with this herbicide. For free information on wildlife management with imazapyr, call (800) 545-9525, ext. F1904E.' © 1999 Quail Unlimited, Inc. Abstract reproduced by permission.
