SS-AGR-326: Wax Myrtle Biology and Control in Pastures

Figure 2. Large, dense areas of wax myrtle can completely eliminate forage growth. This 2008 photo pictures a bahiagrass pasture near Okeechobee where wax myrtle plants were removed approximately seven months earlier. The plants were removed by a skid-steer loader (Bobcat), equipped with a chipper/shredder.
