Weeding - its contribution to soil water conservation in semi-arid maize production



Weeding - its contribution to soil water conservation in semi-arid maize production



1997 Brighton crop protection conference: weeds Proceedings of an international conference, Brighton, UK, 17-20 November 1997 (Volume 1): 185-190



On-station trials carried out on a sandy soil in semi-arid Zimbabwe assessed the effects of eight hand weeding treatments on maize yield and soil water regimes. Results from two very different seasons showed that soil water regimes and crop yields are strongly influenced by the timing and frequency of weeding.
