Weed population dynamics under 'jhum' (slash and burn agriculture) and terrace cultivation in northeast India



Weed population dynamics under 'jhum' (slash and burn agriculture) and terrace cultivation in northeast India



Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment 41(3/4): 285-295



The pattern of emergence, survival and mortality of 6 weed species (Ambrosia artemisiifolia, Drymaria cordata, Galinsoga ciliata, Lindernia nummularifolia, Polygonum alatum and Spergula arvensis) and the dynamics of the total weed population were studied for 2 years (1988-90) in potato fields under slash and burn (jhum) and terrace cultivation in Meghalaya, NE India. The composition of the weed flora in jhum and terrace fields was similar, but the population density was higher in the former.
