Efficiency of fermenting poultry manure for weed control in organically grown eggplants (Solanum melongena L.)

Efficiency of fermenting poultry manure for weed control in organically grown eggplants (Solanum melongena L.)

Arab Journal of Plant Protection 22(1): 35-40

Three field experiments were conducted during two growing seasons, 2001 and 2002, in Jordan, to study the effect of fermenting poultry manure in the rows prior to planting. Organic farming regime was followed, as no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or growth regulators were used. Fermenting poultry manure at 10 kg/m2 under cover for 6 weeks prior to planting effectively controlled the weeds and improved aubergine growth.
