Cowpea cover crop mulch for weed control in desert pepper production

Cowpea cover crop mulch for weed control in desert pepper production

HortScience 35(2): 196-198

A 2-year (1997-98) field project was conducted in California, USA, to investigate cowpea mulch for weed control in pepper (Capsicum annuum) production. Treatments included: bare ground (BG) with hand weeding, BG with no weeding, cowpea mulch (CM) with hand weeding, and CM with no weeding. Cowpea was sown in July, and 2 weeks prior to transplanting peppers, irrigation water was turned off to desiccate the cowpea plants.
