Document Description
This project is to treat Arundo donax along the Walnut canal system in Yolo County with Glyphos aquatic in order to kill the standing Arundo. Following herbicide application, sites of Arundo will be inspected and, if requires to maintain channel conveyance capacity, stocks will be removed and disposed of. No ground disturbance will be undertaken, only above ground plant material will be removed. In subsequent years sites will be inspected and additional spot treatments applied to control any regrowth. A truck mounted 500 gal tank will be used to where access is easily available from maintenance roads. For more difficult access, a small 30 gal ATV mounted spray rig will be used. Some hand pruning of lower branches of existing vegetation may be required in areas of difficult access. Pruning will be kept to the minimum needed to provide access for herbicide treatment. Initial application of herbicide will be conducted during a period when water is not in the channel. However we are using an aquatic approve Glyphos to eliminate off target impacts. No vegetation other than Arundo will be treated.
