Cumulative effects analysis of the water quality risk of herbicides used for site preparation in the Central North Island, New Zealand

Publications Posted on: December 07, 2016
Herbicide use varies both spatially and temporally within managed forests. While information exists on the effects of herbicide use on water quality at the site and small catchment scale, little is known about the cumulative effects of herbicide use at the landscape scale.

Aquatic fate of aerially applied hexazinone and terbuthylazine in a New Zealand planted forest
