Take stock of brush control concerns along rights of way before spring regrowth. Experts suggest strategic herbicide programs for effective control of fast-growing species.
Strategic herbicide selection and application timing support effective brush management plans that meet the needs of utilities, landowners, public users and natural habitats.
Effective vegetation management with IVM programs along utility rights of way is vitally important as utility companies face immense pressure to avoid outages and deliver safe, reliable energy.
Well-planned herbicide applications deliver vegetation control along utility rights of way and other sites to ensure reliable power distribution and worker safety.
Deliver safe, reliable power while keeping maintenance budgets under control with an integrated vegetation management program that includes strategic herbicide applications.
Utility managers can use herbicidal control to significantly reduce costs and increase efficiency as part of an integrated vegetation management (IVM) plan for utility brush control.
Controlling weeds and brush is critical to maintaining safe roadways and effective utilities delivery, as well as protecting the people who maintain and provide those services. DuPont Crop Protection has valuable information and products for selective weeding, brush control and bareground management.
Strategic herbicide applications can help utility managers reduce costs by preventing vegetation re-sprouts and controlling brush species at their roots.
Protecting native vegetation and geosynthetics provide a one-two punch against roadside erosion and help contain costs. Read more from Public Works.
An increase in weather-based events has impacted utilities’ ability to deliver power to customers. Nelson Money explains strategies for storm hardening power distribution networks.
