Vegetative Weed Suppressive Groundcover (Alternative to Herbicides Initiative)

Identify, select, and evaluate alternative vegetation in simulated plots and evaluate promising candidates planted in demonstrations on the right-of-way. The study is to pursue low growing, low maintenance suppressive vegetation tolerant of stresses encountered along the roadway that may be planted under guiderails where conventional mowing is not feasible as an alternative to the use of herbicides to control vegetation at such locations.
