Herbicidal weed control in banana



Herbicidal weed control in banana



Pesticides 23(6): 29-33



Studies were conducted to appraise the efficacy of atrazine, oxadizon, oxyfluorfen, simazine, paraquat and bromacil and hand weeding on weed control, nutrient content in leaf, growth and fruit quality of banana cv. Giant Governor. Bromacil was found completely lethal for banana. All the treatments significantly controlled the monocot and dicot weed population as compared to control. At 19th leaf stage, treatment with oxyfluorfen at 0.75 I/ha showed the maximum N (3.28%), P (1.40%) and K (3.26%) content of leaves. Treatment with paraquat at 1.0 I/ha showed the maximum height (158.5 cm) of the plant, number of hands (8.0/bunch) and fruits (105.25/bunch) while atrazine at 2.5 kg/ha exhibited maximum T.S.S. (19.59) content of fruit. All the treatments markedly increased the fruit acidity compared with control and atrazine at 5.0 and 7.5 kg/ha and oxyfluorfen at 0.75 I/ha were found effective in increasing the Vitamin-C content of fruit.
