Crew and other operational benefits
A fall application reduces weed retreats and the need for expensive reactive mechanical treatments. This also reduces the time crews are working in potentially dangerous bareground areas.
- Minimizes the risk to public (thrown rocks, accidents) and management crew (vehicles hitting mowers) when mechanical treatments are required
- Maintains structural stability of infrastructure when weeds are not present
- Helps reduce the amount of dead weeds, grass, and brush hazards associated with wildfire and obstructed lines-of-sight
