Many methods have been used to eliminate sagebrush and to clear land, but in recent years the application of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) herbicide has emerged as the control method of choice. However, there has been concern about possible adverse environmental effects resulting from the large-scale use of this herbicide. The purpose of the report, is to present factual information on these effects. A general description of the sagebrush-growing areas of the western United States, the history of herbicide use in the study area, application techniques, herbicide formulations, and alternate methods of sagebrush control are presented. Also reported is a discussion and analysis of the broad environmental effects of 2,4-D.
