ksu-logo.jpgHerbicides are chemicals that inhibit or interrupt normal plant growth and development. They are widely used in agriculture, industry, and urban areas for weed management. Herbicides can provide cost-effective weed control while minimizing labor. However, improper herbicide use may result in crop injury, poor weed control, herbicide resistant weeds, environmental contamination, or health risks.

Average: 3 (2 votes)
Your rating: None

 

Desde el punto de vista del control de malezas, la yuca es un cultivo que relativamente ha sido poco estudiado. Dada su rusticidad, se ha creído que este cultivo puede tolerar, sin mayor perjuicio, la competencia de las malezas; sin embargo, se ha observado en Colombia que la presencia de malezas durante los primeros 60 días del ciclo de cultivo causa una reducción de los rendimientos de, aproximadamente, 50% en comparación con yuca libre de malezas durante todo el ciclo.

In the 1980s and '90s, flame weeding made a rapid comeback as a non-chemical weed control technique, especially among organic farmers.
