Study of crop / weed competition in intercropping - 1982 - Printed

Summary (En) IDRC also on microfiche

This experiment was carried out to find the best cereal/legume combinations that would effectively smother weeds. Bulrush millet under monoculture or when intercropped with legumes was the best crop for suppressing weed growth and minimizing grain yield reduction due to weed competition. On the other hand, sorghum and maize whether in monoculture or intercropped with soybean gave a very low grain yield accompanied by increased weed dry matter production. Results also showed the importance of an integrated approach to weed management taking into account all the ecological and biological interactions between crops and weeds
