Efficiency of mulching on soil moisture and temperature, weed control and yield of carrot in summer season



Efficiency of mulching on soil moisture and temperature, weed control and yield of carrot in summer season



Ciencia e Agrotecnologia 29(1): 100-105



The effects of different mulches on the yield of carrots Brasilia, as well as on soil moisture and temperature, and control of weeds infesting carrots were determined in a field experiment conducted in Sao Paulo, Brazil from September to December 1998. The mulching materials used included wood dust, wood chips, dry grass (Cynodon spp.), rice straw and control (soil without cover).
