The viable weed seed content of 'jhum' shifting agriculture and terrace agroecosystems of Meghalaya



The viable weed seed content of 'jhum' shifting agriculture and terrace agroecosystems of Meghalaya



Seed Research 25(1): 1-4



The buried viable weed seed content of 'jhum' and terrace agroecosystems of Meghalaya, India, was investigated from October 1988 to September 1990. A total of 14 weed species was found, of which Spergula arvensis was the most abundant. The density of the viable seed bank increased significantly with increasing soil depth in 'jhum', but not in terrace agroecosystems.
