Herbicides in camomile cultivation

Acta Horticulturae (73): 331-338

Herbicides in camomile cultivation

Elancolan mecoprop, ethofumesate, Kerb 50W and Legurame at recommended rates were compared for their effects on weed and crop growth, essential oil composition and herbicide residues in Matricaria chamomilla. Two crops were harvested about 14 days apart. Only mecoprop treatment resulted in any residue above the permitted limit of 0.5 p.p.m., 1.9 p.p.m. being detected in the second crop of flowers.
