All herbicides currently in use in sugarcane were tested for control of well-developed D. horizontalis. The most effective were 3.2 kg asulam/ha, 2.4 kg MSMA, 1.6 kg diuron + either 1.6 or 2.5 kg ametryn and the following formulated mixtures: 8 li...

An experiment was carried out over 5 years at Londrina in order to evaluate soil management practices to control Digitaria horizontalis (DIGHO) in soyabean crops followed by wheat. The treatments were: (1) disc ploughing (DP); (2) mouldboard ploug...
