Effects of duration of weed interference on growth and development of polybag oil palm seedlings



Effects of duration of weed interference on growth and development of polybag oil palm seedlings



Journal of the Nigerian Institute for Oil Palm Research 7(2): 176-182



In a nursery in Benin City, Nigeria in 1982-83, weeds were allowed to grow with oil palm seedlings in polybags for periods of 2-36 weeks after sowing sprouted oil palm nuts. Weed biomass increased to a peak 18 weeks after sowing and then declined. There was a positive correlation between duration of weed interference and percentage growth reduction in oil palm seedling DW, height, leaf area and leaf number, although the relationship was not significant for leaf number.
