Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
THE NEAT ROWS OF WHITE AND PINK blooming trees in the San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys will have a new look this spring. Strips of brown soil bordered by green interspaces may be seen down many of the tree rows. These weed-free strips will probably be the result of herbicides applied before the rainy season and prior to weed emergence.
