The Effect of Soil Sterilants on the Wind Erodibility of Pullman Silty Clay Loam1

  1. A. F. Wiese and
  2. H. E. Rea2



Sterilizing Pullman silty day loam for perennial weed eradication may create a wind erosion hazard for about 2 years. Soil treated with 3-p-chlorophenyl-l,l-dimethyl urea (monuron) was more susceptible to wind erosion than soil treated with anhydrous borax, a 75% sodium borate plus 25% sodium chlorate mixture, or sodium chlorate. Undisturbed monurontreated soil was more susceptible to wind erosion than monuron soil treatments which were subsequently sweep tilled and planted to sorghum.
