Ontario, OR, 1998 Introduction Weed control in clover seed production is necessary to insure weed-free clover seed and to prevent yield losses from weed competition. Herbicide options are limited in clover-seed production and research is needed to identify additional herbicide options for weed control. Methods Trials were conducted on cooperators fields in Adrian, OR to evaluate herbicides for weed control and crop tolerance in clover-seed production. With the exception of herbicide applications, cooperators managed the plot areas with the rest of their field. Treatments were applied with a CO2-pressurized backpack sprayer, calibrated to deliver 20 gpa at 30 psi. Plots were 9- or 10-ft wide by 30-ft long and were arranged in a randomized complete block design with four replications. Herbicide treatments were evaluated for weed control, clover injury, height, and seed yield. Clover seed-yield was determined by harvesting a 3.75-ft strip from the center of each plot with a small plot combine. Raw ...
The first smart idea in a project of weed control without chemicals is to prepare the plot of ground in question. Just as in a construction project, laying a good foundation is of the utmost importance. In this context, by foundation I mean the state of the ground where your plants will be growing. Implement these ideas before you plant, so that youll get off to a smooth start in your project of weed control without chemicals. 1. Killing Weeds Through Soil Solarization Soil solarization is a preventive, organic method of killing weeds -- before they even sprout! The advice below is meant for homeowners wishing to start out with a clean slate, re-landscaping a weed-filled patch of land in such a way as to reduce to a minimum the hassle of weed control in the future. For more information on this technique, please consult the following resource: Killing Weeds Through Soil Solarization 2. How to Lay Landscape Fabrics For those in need of soil solarization (see above), installing landscape fabrics ...
Although carrots may be grown on mineral soils, production in Florida is almost exclusively on the organic soils of central and south Florida. While the practice of seeding the crop in six lines per bed enhances total yield that may be harvested per acre, it also mostly prevents the use of mechanical cultivation for weed control. Control of weeds is extremely important in several aspects. Because weeds directly compete with carrots for nutrients, space, and water, they reduce the size of carrot roots and thus reduce overall yield. Weeds also cause carrot roots to be deformed and therefore unmarketable. Weeds that present late in the season may also cause severe harvesting problems. Weed control is critical early in the season because it will allow the formation of good, straight roots, and it is important for the above reasons throughout the growing season. Currently, only linuron is labeled for preemergence (both carrots and weeds) application on muck soils, and only linuron, pendimethalin, and ...
This study was carried out in the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Khartoum, Shambat, during winter growing seasons of 1996/97 and 1997/98 to evaluate the efficacy of weed control by three pre-emergence herbicides: Goal applied at (0.2, 0.4 and 0.6 L/ha), Ronstar 40 FLO applied at (0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 L/ha) and Stomp 500 EC applied at (1.5, 2.0 and 3.0 L/ha) and to see the tolerance of faba bean crop ( Vicia faba L.) to these herbicides. Results indicated that the hand-weeding control treatment resulted in a significant increase in faba bean seed yield in both seasons as compared to the unweeded control. Moreover, the three herbicides at their high rates used gave seed yield which was comparable to the hand-weeding control. The herbicides used resulted in a moderate to good overall weed control especially at their high rates. The three herbicides at their medium and high rates, gave excellent and persistent control of annual grasses, in terms of number of weed and final weed biomass. ...

Before discussing chemical weed control in rhododendrons, mulching, the safest weed control method, should be considered. Mulching prevents soil erosion, provides for better soil moisture penetration and retention, and increases the availability of soil nutrients. Except for possible increased radiation frost damage to susceptible plants in the spring and fall, most of the disadvantages of mulches are related to using the wrong materials. Some finely ground materials, i.e., peat moss and some saw dusts, tend to crust and inhibit moisture penetration. Large leaves such as maple often pack so tightly that soil aeration is restricted. Chopped oak leaves, ground bark, pine needles, sugar cane and woodchips are suitable mulching materials. Mulching is usually too costly as a commercial practice ...

The program for the control of annual weeds in the orchard should consider the weed free strip under the tree and the sod middles between the tree rows separately. The "Weed Control Season" in orchards starts in late fall, after harvest. The program implemented in the spring depends on what herbicides were applied the previous fall. If herbicides were applied in late fall, applications can be delayed until later in the spring. Residual herbicides should be applied in late winter or early spring after the soil is no longer frozen, if no late fall treatment was applied.. Annual weeds are weed species that live for less than one year. Winter annual germinate in the fall or late winter, flower in the spring or early summer, then die. Summer annuals germinate in the spring and early summer flower, and die in late summer or fall. Perennial weeds are weed species that live for more than two years. Control of these weeds must be considered separately.. Emerged annual weeds under the tree are controlled ...

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Glufosinate ammonium is one of the most widely-applied broad-spectrum herbicides, controlling weeds in a huge variety of crops worldwide. Farmers rely on glufosinate ammonium because it ensures a high degree of crop safety, as it only affects the parts of the plant where it is applied. It is effective against a broad range of weeds, eliminating the need to apply several herbicides to control different weeds in a given crop. Its unique mode of action makes it ideal to be used in rotation with other herbicides to mitigate weed resistance. Despite these favourable attributes for weed control glufosinate ammonium has its shortcomings. Glufosinate ammonium is a post emergence herbicide and its efficacy is not exempt from the effect of environmental/climatic conditions and the growth stage of weeds. The possible effect of these factors on the performance of the herbicide was investigated in a glasshouse study using ryegrass (Lolium spp) as the test species. The investigation ...
Understanding the effects of intensive agricultural land use activities on water resources is essential for natural resource management and environmental improvement. In this paper, multi-scale nested watersheds were delineated and the relationships between two representative water quality indexes and agricultural land use intensity were assessed and quantified for the year 2000 using multi-scale regression analysis. The results show that the log-transformed nitrate-nitrogen (NO3-N) index exhibited a relationship with chemical fertilizer input intensity and several natural factors, including soil loss, rainfall and sunlight at the first order watershed scale, while permanganate index (CODMn) had a positive relationship with another two input intensities of pesticides and agricultural plastic mulch and organic manure at the fifth order watershed scale. The first order watershed and the fifth order watershed were considered as the watershed adaptive response units for NO3-N and CODMn, respectively. The

The report documents the study on a hydrogen proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) named Kenyalang-1. Common aircraft utilize internal combustion engines (ICE) as main power source for the propulsion system. However, ICE imposes negative impact towards the environment due to the pollution produced through carbon emission, initiating green house effect, global warming, and health problems. Researchers have started to develop interest on the possibilities of using alternative energies to replace ICE aircraft propulsion system. Due to the relatively new nature of the technology, there is a need for a research on the development of a ftiel cell electrical propulsion system. The objectives of this project are to design and to develop a fuel cell propulsion system that operates using a 500 W hydrogen PEM fuel cell as the main power generator for a UAV. The research is important to determine the capability of the propulsion system to power a custom designed ...
On 2 February the European Commission launched the first phase of the modernization and simplification of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with the opening of a three-month public consultation. The contributions received will support the Commissions work to define the agricultural policy priorities for the future. A modernized and simplified Common Agricultural Policy would address the key challenges that agriculture and rural areas are facing while at the same time contributing to the Commissions policy priorities (notably jobs and growth), to sustainable development, a budget focused on results, simplification and subsidiarity.. Announcing the consultation process, EU Agriculture and Rural Development Commissioner Phil Hogan said: "Today we are taking the next steps towards modernizing and simplifying the Common Agricultural Policy for the 21st Century. By launching this public consultation, we are asking all stakeholders and those interested in the future of food and ...
Weed control in smallholder farming systems of sub-Saharan Africa is labour intensive or costly. Many researchers have therefore advocated for the use of cover crops in weed management as an affordable alternative for smallholders. Cover crops may be grown in rotations to suppress weeds and reduce the reliance on herbicides. The use of cover crops creates microenvironments that are either conducive or inhibitive to the emergence of certain weed species. A study, initiated in 2008 in contrasting soils at four different locations of Zimbabwe, investigated the effect of maize (Zea mays L.)-cover crop rotations on the emergence of weeds that showed dominance in those soils. Weed assessments were however, carried out from 2011 to 2014. The weed species Galinsoga parviflora Cav., Commelina benghalensis L., and Richardia scabra L. showed dominance in all four locations with weed densities as high as 500 plants m−2 being recorded for R. scabra L. in a sandy soil. Maize-cover crop rotations resulted in ...
The adoption of herbicide-resistant crops may foster the continuous use or multiple applications of one herbicide and may favour the proliferation of weed species that are more difficult to control. A study was initiated in 1999 at the Rice Research and Extension Centner, Stuttgart, Germany, to assess the change in weed composition in response to a weed control program for herbicide-resistant crops and various crop rotation schemes. Glufosinate-resistant or Liberty Link (LL) cultivars of rice and soyabean were used. Dominant weed species, before postemergence herbicide application, were Sida spinosa (prickly sida), Echinochloa crus-galli (barnyardgrass), Cyperus iria (rice flatsedge), Sesbania exaltata (hemp sesbania), Amaranthus palmeri (Palmer amaranth), Mollugo verticillata (carpetweed), and Portulaca oleracea (common purslane). Visual ratings 50 days after planting showed ,90% control of all weeds in nontransgenic rice. Glufosinate (Liberty) provided excellent weed control except for ...
The Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation, or ADMARC, was formed in Malawi in 1971 as a Government-owned corporation or parastatal to promote the Malawian economy by increasing the volume and quality of agricultural exports, to develop new foreign markets for the consumption of Malawian agricultural produce and to supporting Malawis farmers. It was the successor of a number of marketing boards of the colonial-era and early post-colonial times, whose functions were as much about controlling African smallholders and generating government revenues as in promoting agricultural development. At its foundation, ADMARC was given the power to finance the economic development of any public or private organization. In its first decade of operation, ADMARC was considered to be more business-like and less bureaucratic than similar African parastatal bodies, but from its formation it was involved in the diversion of resources from smallholder farming to tobacco estates, often owned by members of ...
Weeds are hard to kill-they seem to come back no matter what steps people take to eradicate them. One reason is because of the persistence of weed seeds in the soil. Organic and conventional farming systems both have methods for battling weed seeds, and the authors of a study in the April-June 2011 issue of the journal Weed Science conducted tests to compare the results.. The scientists research determined weed-seed viability under both organic and conventional farming systems over a two-year period at agricultural research locations in Maryland and Pennsylvania. To compare the systems, researchers buried two types of weed seeds-smooth pigweed and common lambs-quarters-in mesh bags. Weed-seed viability was determined by retrieving seeds every six months over the two-year period. Depth of seeds in the soil, environmental conditions and soil management are among the factors that affect seed persistence. Under conventional soil management, tillage is an important practice that manipulates the ...

Excerpt:. … Tall buttercup can displace pasture grasses and clovers and is cause for concern due to its toxicity to livestock, especially cattle. In Montana it has invaded over 20,000 acres and is a Priority 2A noxious weed. Irrigation may create conditions conducive to tall buttercup growth and survival, but the amount of moisture required for optimal seedling emergence and growth has not been explored. Understanding the importance of soil moisture on seedling recruitment can inform effective management strategies.. We conducted a greenhouse study to assess seedling emergence and growth along a gradient of soil moisture. We collected seed from tall buttercup growing in flood and sub-irrigated hayfields in southwestern Montana, planted them in soil in half gallon pots, and subjected them to three soil moisture treatments including 25, 50, and 100 percent field capacity (field capacity = amount of water held in soil after excess water has drained away, usually 24 hours after a wetting event). ...

James L. Griffin. Entomologists for many years have dealt with insect resistance to insecticides. For weed scientists, however, weed resistance to herbicides is relatively new. Herbicide resistance occurs when a weed population is able to survive a herbicide treatment that under normal use conditions would be controlled. The adage of "survival of the fittest" applies here, and, in fact, weed resistance to a herbicide is an example of accelerated evolution. The process begins with just a few plants with the genetic capacity to survive the herbicide treatment. It is believed that these plants, which occur naturally in the population at a low level, are not a result of genetic mutation caused by the herbicide. These inherently resistant plants when exposed to the same herbicide over several years produce seed, and over time the population slowly shifts such that the resistant weeds become dominant. Since this process is slow, the producer may not notice the problem until large-scale weed control ...
Agriculture is one of the economic sectors that affect climate change contributing to greenhouse gas emissions directly and indirectly. There is a trend of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions reduction, but any practice in this direction should not affect negatively farm productivity and economics because this would limit its implementation, due to the high global food and feed demand and the competitive environment in this sector. Precision agriculture practices using high-tech equipment has the ability to reduce agricultural inputs by site-specific applications, as it better target inputs to spatial and temporal needs of the fields, which can result in lower greenhouse gas emissions. Precision agriculture can also have a positive impact on farm productivity and economics, as it provides higher or equal yields with lower production cost than conventional practices. In this work, precision agriculture technologies that have the potential ...
Rainfall amounts across the Southwest Region were variable, ranging from 5 to 30 mm, with heavier amounts and pea-sized hail reported in isolated thundershowers. Damage from the hail was negligible due to the early growth stages of most crops. These recent rains were beneficial to emerging oilseeds that were damaged by earlier frost events and the severe flea beetle pressure being experienced throughout much of the region. Soil moisture is generally adequate across the region but surplus along the Manitoba/U.S. border. Seeding in the extreme southern portions of the region is now virtually complete with most acres being planted. Weed control spraying operations continued to make significant progress early last week due to several calm days. Weed control measures in spring wheat are now 75 to 80% complete, field peas 85 to 90%, malt barley 75 to 80%, flax and oats 50 to 60% complete and Liberty canola 40 to 50% complete. First pass glyphosate applications on canola, corn and soybeans are ...

Data and research on development including official development assistance (ODA), aid architecture and effectiveness, conflict, fragility, evaluation, gender, governance and poverty., This report analyses Philippine agricultural policy. Agriculture provides 30% of total employment in the Philippines and represents 11% of its Gross Domestic Product. The Philippines has had notable recent overall economic success, yet improving agricultural performance remains challenging. Productivity growth lags behind other Southeast Asian countries, and a number of policy distortions hinder progress. With agricultural land resources also under pressure from frequent natural disasters, rising population and urbanisation, the report offers a series of recommendations to improve the sectors performance and its ability to adapt to climate change.
During 1986 and 1987, a weed survey of 187 New Brunswick cereal fields was conducted. A total of 76 species were identified, of which 40 were considered agronomically important. About 50% of the species were perennial. Hemp-nettle (Galeopsis tetrahit), quack grass (Agropyron repens [Elymus repens]), sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella), ox-eye daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum [Leucanthemum vulgare]), corn spury (Spergula arvensis) and chickweed (Stellaria media) had the highest relative abundance values. Quack grass and hemp-nettle had the highest densities at 8.0 and 7.1 plants m-2, respectively. The highest weed density (103 plants m-2) was found in oats (Avena sativa) grown after a forage crop. The lowest density (24 plants m-2) was found in wheat (Triticum aestivum) grown after potatoes (Solanum tuberosum). Most of the abundant species were tolerant to MCPA, the most commonly used herbicide. It was concluded that farmers could make major improvements in cereal weed control by choosing a ...
Eastern star clover (Trifolium dasyurum C. Presl.) is a new pasture legume developed for use in short phases between extended cropping sequences in Western Australian dryland agriculture. Its delayed germination provides an opportunity to obtain almost complete control of the highly-competitive crop weed rigid ryegrass (Lolium rigidum Gaudin) through non-selective herbicide application and/or grazing. Given the recent development of a commercial cultivar of eastern star clover (cv. AGWEST® Sothis), a complex simulation model is used to evaluate its potential profitability relative to continuous-cropping and rotations employing a popular pasture, French serradella (Ornithopus sativus Brot. cv. Cadiz). The profitability of those sequences containing eastern star clover is robust to high initial ryegrass populations and increasing severity of herbicide resistance. Moreover, the weed control benefits accruing to this pastures delayed germination are of sufficient magnitude to offset the low ...

Cogongrass (Imperata cylindria) is an invasive weed and harmful to ecological systems and agricultural production in many countries. It was found that plant extracts and root exudates of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) exhibit allelopathic potential and inhibit the growth of cogongrass to a greater extent than either barnyardgrass (Echinochloa crus-galli), Indian goose-grass (Eleushine indica), or lettuce (Lactuca sativa) in bioassays. Greenhouse trials indicated that sweet potato soil reduced the emergence of the noxious weed by 50 %, yet exhibited either weaker inhibition or the promotion of barnyardgrass, Bidens (Bidens pilosa), and Leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala), while the desired growth of upland rice (Oryza sativa) was not affected. In cogongrass fields, the incorporation of 1-2 tons aboveground parts and cultivation of sweet potato provided 80-85 % weed control. On the other hand, the reduction of congograss in fields may be offset by the alternate invasion of B. pilosa which multiplied its
A cross-cultural analysis of mortality patterns is of interest to biological anthropologists and genetic epidemiologists. In this paper, we examine four agricultural populations from Costa Rica, Hungary, and the United States in order to determine if they suffered from a cyclical distribution of epidemics. When possible, we look at the mortality time series of adults and children separately. Of the12 series, only 2 show significant epidemic cycles. Both are in the Hungarian groups and both affect subadults. Otherwise, the Costa Rica, U.S., and adult series of the Hungarian groups do not show any periodicity of mortality peaks. Our results indicate that epidemic cycles are not as ubiquitous in small agricultural groups as the literature would suggest.

The resistant rape cultivars and respective herbicides were Pioneer 45A76 and imazamox, Hyola 357RR and glyphosate, and 2573 Invigor and glufosinate. Weed seed of Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) and wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) were sown simultaneously in October with rape and control of these species was evaluated along with other naturally occurring weeds. Herbicide treatments for the respective herbicide-resistant rape cultivar were imazamox at 0.035 and 0.071 kg/ha, glyphosate at 0.84 and 1.64 kg/ha, and glufosinate at 0.5 and 1.0 kg/ha. Herbicides were applied at one- to two-leaf and three- to four-leaf rape stages. There was no significant injury to any rape cultivar as a result of herbicide rate or timing of application. By midseason (February), imazamox effectively controlled wild radish, henbit (Lamium amplexicaule), and ...

The Australian cotton industrys Herbicide Resistance Management Strategy (HRMS) is a tool for managing the risk of herbicide resistance in irrigated and dryland farming systems incorporating herbicide-tolerant cotton. The strategy has been developed in response to the escalating problem of group M herbicide resistance. Resistance to glyphosate has been confirmed in a number species in cotton farming systems including awnless barnyard grass, fleabane, sowthistle, windmill grass, ryegrass and most recently, sweet summer grass (Brachiaria eruciformis).. CRDC instigated the HRMS project to provide growers and agronomists with more support in making changes to weed control practices through the development of an industry-wide herbicide resistance management strategy.. First released in 2014-15, the HRMS is updated annually to ensure it remains relevant for cotton growers. ...

Various issues important to animal agriculture have generated interest among lawmakers in the first session of the 108th Congress. For example, under the 2002 farm bill (P.L. 107-171) many food stores in 2004 must provide country-of-origin labeling (COOL) on ground and fresh cuts of beef, pork, and lamb. The Housepassed USDA ...
Herbicides are vital to a good weed control program for furrow-irrigated rice. Growers should scout regularly for new weed flushes after previous herbicide treatments, since without permanent flooding, weeds will germinate and emerge throughout the growing season. Early season herbicide programs should be planned similarly to those for flooded rice.. A pre-emergence residual herbicide may be more important in furrow-irrigated rice, since less water is used than in flooded rice culture. A couple of weeks free of weeds will aid in good stand establishment and early season crop vigor.. Prowl has provided excellent residual grass control in furrow-irrigated rice studies. Prowl can be applied pre-emergence to the rice or tank-mixed with the early season propanil (Stam) treatment. It should be used especially when sprangletop is a problem, since propanil is weak on sprangletop.. Bolero is effective only if the soil surface is maintained wet, which can be very difficult. Although a furrow-irrigated ...
The simplest method of purslane weed control is by pulling the plants while young. Like many broadleaf plants, purslane puts out a taproot that as the plant matures, makes older plants difficult to pull. At the mature state, individual plants will need a shovel or spade to remove them completely from the garden. * Purslane plants that have been dug up should be allowed to dry in the sun and then composted for a year before using as organic matter in the garden. The use of a hoe to break up the plant may have some effect, but since purslane can reproduce itself from stem pieces it is best to remove the entire plant or break the plant before the stems begin to form. Any post-emergence broadleaf herbicide can be used on purslane in the early stages of the plant. After the plant has formed stems and flowers, it is best to mow the plant before applying chemical herbicides. Organic herbicides include acetic acid and clove oil and are used the same way as chemical herbicides. In the fall, purslane can ...
Weeds interfere with establishment of native grasses and legumes. A study was conducted to determine the influence of imazapic1 [(±)- 2-[4,5-dihydro-4-methyl-4-(1-methylethyl)-5-oxo-1H-imidazol-2-yl]- 5-methyl-3-pyridinecarboxylic acid] and imazethapyr [2-[4,5-dihydro- 4-methyl -4 - (1- methylethyl) -5 -oxo-1H- imidazol -2 - yl]5- ethyl -3- pyridinecarboxylic acid] on weed control and establishment of Pawnee big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii Vitman var. gerardii Vitman) and Illinois bundleflower [Desmanthus illinoensis (Michx.) MacMill.] planted in three binary mixtures of 220:110, 165:165, and 110:220 pure live seed (PLS) m-2. Mixtures were seeded at cropland sites near Clay Center, Mead, and Lincoln, NE. Imazapic and imazeth- apyr were applied at 70 g a.i. ha-1 before planted species emerged. Imazapic or imazethapyr did not reduce dry matter yields of annual grass weeds, where herbicides were applied in April 1996 at Mead and Clay Center. Both grass and broadleaf weeds were controlled at
Site of action refers to the biochemical site within the plant with which the herbicide directly interacts. Some herbicide site of action interactions are well understood, others are unknown. Many of the well-known sites of action are enzymes or proteins essential to plant growth and development (Figure 1 and Figure 2). Also, some herbicides are believed to act at multiple sites.. Metabolism refers to the biochemical processes within the plant that generally modify herbicides to less toxic compounds. Differential rates of metabolism between crops and weeds is a primary method of crop selectivity to herbicides. One metabolic process may affect several different families of herbicides.. Herbicide families are a convenient way of organizing herbicides that share a common chemical structure and have similar herbicidal activity. Two or more herbicide families may affect the same site of action and therefore express similar herbicidal activity and injury symptoms. A biotype is a group of plants within ...
Products of the organic arsenical herbicides MSMA (the monosodium salt of methanearsonic acid (MAA)) has been providing reliable, cost-effective weed control for over 50 years. The diversity of the uses to which MSMA products are applied is testament to the fact that these herbicides are unique in that they combine selectivity, low weed-resistance, and cost-efficiency.. NO RESISTANCE BUILD UP: Weed-resistance to herbicides is on the rise due to both the repeated use of the herbicides and the introduction of genetically modified crops. These crops are endowed with natural resistance to certain herbicides, a resistance which they may impart to non-crops through cross pollination. There are very few, if any, new products capable of economically combating the resistance problem. With the exception of isolated cases of common cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium), no resistance build-up has occurred with the weeds that MSMA controls.. MSMA is an effective and economic herbicide. Its selectivity makes it ...
Most apple buyers visit farms and purchase the tasty fruit at the farms markets or even pull them straight off the trees. Yet, most people probably never consider that growers must keep orchards clear of weeds so the trees can bear those beautiful apple varieties. This article focuses on the weeds most prevalent in the North Carolina region.. So what weeds give North Carolina-based growers the most problems? Wayne Mitchem, Southern Region Small Fruit Consortium coordinator and tree fruit weed management Extension associate at North Carolina State University, said weeds that affect apple growers in the region include large crabgrass, fall panicum, pigweed, lambsquarter, smartweed species, morningglory species, Carolina geranium, dandelion, curly dock, mouse-ear and common chickweed, purple deadnettle and horseweed.. "In newly planted orchards, we recommend growers protect the trunks and use Chateau (flumioxazin) for preweed control," Mitchem said. "A sequential application of 6 to 8 ounces per ...

The management of invasive species is carried out by individuals, conservation groups, and government agencies. The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service is responsible for ensuring that no new species with the potential to become invasive species enter Australia. To raise public awareness, Australian Quarantine has featured Australian celebrity nature lover Steve Irwin on a series of television commercials, with the message Quarantine - Dont mess with it. Several scientific bodies are involved in research for the control of invasive species. The CSIRO has released several successful biological pest control agents and developed chemical agents for pest and weed control. For example, the CSIRO released myxoma virus to control wild rabbits in Australia. Rabbit haemorrhagic disease escaped containment from an Australian Government research facility and spread across Australia. Rabbit hemorrhagic disease was subsequently legalised for the control of wild rabbits. The moth Cactoblastis ...

The connection between technological change and economic growth is generally explained within a framework provided by a macro-economic production function where output depends on labour and capital. The shortcomings of such an approach are critically examined. It is argued that technology is not merely a production phenomena but embraces all aspects of human activity which should be incorporated in a technology-growth model. The contribution of colonization, slavery, migration and discovery of cheap oil and gas to technological change and economic growth in the developed countries should be thoroughly analyzed to explain the actual process of their development. Historical experience of the interaction between crop and livestock sectors in the process of development of these countries also need to be understood for developing appropriate technology in the less developed countries Jabbar, M. A.

... was last measured at 24.50 in 2012, according to the World Bank. Agricultural land refers to the share of land area that is arable, under permanent crops, and under permanent pastures. Arable land includes land defined by the FAO as land under temporary crops (double-cropped areas are counted once), temporary meadows for mowing or for pasture, land under market or kitchen gardens, and land temporarily fallow. Land abandoned as a result of shifting cultivation is excluded. Land under permanent crops is land cultivated with crops that occupy the land for long periods and need not be replanted after each harvest, such as cocoa, coffee, and rubber. This category includes land under flowering shrubs, fruit trees, nut trees, and vines, but excludes land under trees grown for wood or timber. Permanent pasture is land used for five or more years for forage, including natural and cultivated crops.This page has the latest values, historical data, forecasts,

There has been controversy over whether glyphosate used for weed management in citrus fields causes significant toxicity to citrus plants. Glyphosate may be toxic to non-target plants exposed to accidental application or drift. This work evaluated glyphosate toxicity in plants of Valencia citrus (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck) grafted onto Rangpur lime (Citrus limonia L. Osbeck) and citrumelo Swingle (Poncirus trifoliata (L.) Raf×Citrus paradisi Macf) by trunk- or foliar-directed herbicide applications under field conditions. In the first experiment, glyphosate was sprayed at rates of 0, 90, 180, 260, 540, 1080 and 2160 g a.e. ha-1 directly on the trunk to a height of 5 cm above the grafting region. In the second experiment, glyphosate was sprayed on the plant canopies at rates of 0, 0.036, 0.36, 3.6, 36, 360 and 720 g a.e. ha-1. There was no visual damage caused by glyphosate applied directly to the trunk, but the plants were affected by glyphosate sprayed directly on the canopies at rates ...
In this research study, we have scientifically assessed medicinal species and herbal preparations used by inhabitants of Northern Pakistan to treat joint pain, hypertension, skin diseases and glottis infections. The aim of the study is to document and highlight the ethnopharmacological significance and compare the uses of medicinal herbs for curing prevalent ailments in Northern Pakistan. Ethnomedicinal data were collected from 180 informants using semi-structured interviews and group meetings. A total of 80 plant species in 54 families were reported for the treatment of various health conditions. Heliotropium lasiocarpum, Geranium wallichianum, Parkinsonia aculeata, Rubia cordifolia and Salvadora persica were the favored plants for curing these diseases. Highest RFC was recorded for Neolitsea chinensis (0.956), Rubia cordifolia (0.928). The similarity of the informers knowledge about used medicines was found in Aesculus indica and Abies pindrow with high UV. Cuscuta reflexa and Lawsonia inermis had 98
Weeds are a major pest problem for Goldenmane Tickseed. Weeds can reduce seed yield by competing with the wildflower for water and nutrients. However, even if weed competition seems minimal and the wildflower crop is thriving, use cultural practices that will reduce the amount of weed seed that could be harvested with the crop seed. Preventing weed seed from getting into the wildflower seed harvest is usually easier than cleaning out the weed seeds after the harvest. In addition, marketing Goldenmane Tickseed seed will be difficult or impossible if too many weed seeds are mixed with the wildflower seed. Eliminate weeds that grow into the canopy of the crop to prevent weed seed from being harvested along with the wildflower seed. Be especially diligent about eradicating noxious weed species (1) from the Goldenmane Tickseed planting. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) prohibits the inclusion of noxious weed seed in any seed sold in Florida.. If chemical weed ...
A University of Georgia professor is advocating that farmers rotate the pesticides they apply to cotton crops in order to prevent another outbreak of the herbicide-resistant weed, Palmer amaranth.. In 2004, glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth was discovered in Macon County, Georgia. Being resistant to this herbicide allowed Palmer amaranth, commonly known as "pigweed," to grow into the $100 million-a-year problem it is today for Georgia cotton farmers.. "One of the key things to know about herbicide resistance is that a weed is resistant to that herbicide before you ever spray it," said William Vencill, a professor in the crop and soil sciences department of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, during the Southern Weed Science Society annual meeting held in Savannah, Jan. 26-28. "Once you start spraying that herbicide time and time again without applying other herbicides or other diverse weed management techniques, that one-in-a-billion trait can start to survive and ...
Genetically modified (GM) herbicide-tolerant (HT) crops have been largely adopted where they have been authorized. Nevertheless, they are fiercely criticized by some, notably because of the herbicide use associated with them. However, how much herbicide is applied to GMHT crops compared to conventional crops, and what impacts does the use of herbicide have? The paper first presents some factors explaining the predominance of GMHT crops. Then, trends in the use of herbicide for GM crops are studied in the case of the most widespread HT crop: HT soybean in the USA. The trends in the toxicity of herbicides applied to HT soybean are also addressed, as well as the appearance of glyphosate-resistant (GR) weeds. Lastly, the paper examines the spread of GR weeds and its impact. How are farmers, weed scientists, and the industry coping with this development, and what are the prospects of glyphosate-tolerant crops given weed resistance? In conclusion, some issues of sustainability and innovation ...
Few studies report animal grazing effects on weed populations. A study was conducted to assess weed populations in annual and perennial forage grasses grazed at various intensities by cattle over a 4-yr period. The perennial forages were Bromus inermis and Bromus riparius, and the annual forages were winter Triticosecale and a mixture of Hordeum vulgare and winter Triticosecale. With few exceptions, results from the two annual pastures could be adequately described as a group, as could the results from the two perennial pastures. The two most prevalent weed species were Capsella bursa-pastoris and Taraxacum officinale; other species encountered over the course of the study were analyzed as a group. Tillage (seedbed preparation) in the annual system supported a proliferation of annual weeds in the spring. In the perennial pasture system, a lack of tillage and spring MCPA allowed T. officinale to increase as the study progressed, especially at the highest grazing intensity. In the perennial ...
A weed survey was carried out in seven islands in Dongla area during the summer season of 2004 to determine the most common and prevalent weed species associated with maize (Zea mays L.) cultivation. A stratified random sampling procedure was adopted, whereby each island was divided into fields of which 10 were randomly selected. Number of individual weed species was determined in 10 quadrates each 1 m2. The field density, frequency, uniformity and relative abundance of the species were determined. Data revealed the presence of 25 species of annual and perennial plants belonging to 13 families. The highest number of species occurred in Elmasakeen whilst the lowest was recorded in Artigasha. C. dactylon, C. rotundus and P. oleracea were weeds that occurred at high relative abundance. Species with moderate relative abundance included S. arundinaceum, A. viridis, E. colona and G. gynandra. The other species occurred in 1 - 2 islands and exhibited low to very low relative abundance. A study of ...

Beyond Pesticides, August 27, 2012) A report published recently in the journal Weed Science has found that a population of the common weed waterhemp in Nebraska is resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D. The news comes as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) considers approving several new crops that have been genetically engineered (GE) for resistance to the herbicide. The report presents the latest in a long line of evidence that crops engineered for herbicide resistance are only pushing the problems of weed management further down the road. Researchers from the University of Nebraska found that half of the waterhemp samples they collected from a Nebraska field, after having been treated regularly for 10 years with 2,4-D,were no longer susceptible to applications of the herbicide. The experiments performed are described by Reuters: "After 10 years of treatment with 2,4-D, waterhemp was no longer effectively controlled in a Nebraska native-grass seed production field, the report said. The ...
August 8, 2017. An onslaught of the weed Palmer amaranth in the southeastern United States has left many farmers wondering if they should continue using environmentally friendly cover crops and conservation tillage, or switch to conventional tillage.. Palmer amaranth is aggressive, drought tolerant, a prolific seed producer, and capable of developing resistance to glyphosate, known as "Roundup." Because of that, thousands of acres in Alabama and elsewhere are at risk of being converted to conventional tillage, which may better control the weed, but increases soil erosion and threatens long-term soil productivity. Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists at the agencys National Soil Dynamics Laboratory in Auburn, Alabama, are showing cotton farmers in the region how they can control the weed, save their soil, and still generate a profit: They can conventionally till weed-infested fields for one year and then go back to conservation tillage for the next two years.. ARS economist Leah M. ...

THIRD WORLD NETWORK BIOSAFETY INFORMATION SERVICE. Dear Friends and Colleagues. Glyphosate-Resistant Weeds A Growing Major Problem Worldwide. Glyphosate-resistant soybean was introduced in 1996, the first of several (genetically modified) glyphosate-resistant crops, which allowed the herbicide, glyphosate, to be used as a selective post-emergence herbicide. Glyphosates widespread use has resulted in a situation where glyphosate-resistant weed species are evolving at a steady pace and the more virulent existing glyphosate-resistant weeds are spreading rapidly.. A recent review (Item 1) gives us an overview of the incidence of glyphosate-resistant weeds in the world. Thirty-eight weed species have now evolved resistance to glyphosate, distributed across 37 countries and in 34 different crops and six non-crop situations. Glyphosate-resistant weeds in glyphosate-resistant crop systems account for more than 90% of the area infested and the economic damage caused by glyphosate-resistant weeds ...

Seahorses are used in the treatment of a wide range of health problems under the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is a complementary and alternative system of medicine (CAM). You can refer to my article - "The Basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)" to learn the fundamentals of TCM. Seahorses are employed in the treatment of sexual weakness, reduced sexual desire or drive (reduced libido; libido means sexual desire or sex drive), and are considered as broad-spectrum or general tonics. The practitioners of TCM claim that seahorses strengthen "kidneys" and improve "nerves", which in the context of Traditional Chinese Medicine points to general morale, well-being, and vigor. "kidneys" also imply sexual function in the context of TCM. Seahorses are categorized under sweet, salty, and warm medicines. They are usually not prescribed alone but in combo-preparations (formulations containing multiple ingredients) containing matter from other animals and plants.. Continue reading → ...

The most dramatic changes in herbicide use came after the Second World War, when the phenoxy herbicides 2,4-D and MCPA were developed. They were effective against broadleaf weeds in lawns, pasture and cereal crops like wheat, barley and maize. These chemicals are still used today to kill thistles and ragwort in pastures, and as ingredients in solutions to combat weeds in cereal crops. The herbicide 2,4,5-T was applied to gorse and other scrub until the late 1980s. Its withdrawal followed public concern over its use as an ingredient in Agent Orange, a defoliant used extensively in Vietnam. This was associated with birth deformities, cancer and many other illnesses thought to be caused by dioxin, a toxic and carcinogenic by-product of its manufacture. In the early 2000s, controversy still surrounded the Dow AgroSciences plant in New Plymouth, where 2,4,5-T and other phenoxy herbicides were made. Local residents claimed ongoing health problems resulting from contamination.. ...
Photograph of a Russian thistle (Salsola Kali), or Ink weed, growing in the Colorado Desert, Imperial Valley, California, ca.1910. "So called because when thrashed it stains wheat black". The large bush of Russian thistle resembles a dark cloud at center in a sea of sand. The plant is an indiscernible cluster of thin, stiff stems. Similar plants can be seen in the background.Photograph of a Russian thistle (Salsola Kali), or Ink weed, growing in the Colorado Desert, Imperial Valley, California, ca.1910.

Sida cordifolia (ilima, flannel weed, bala, country mallow or heart-leaf sida) is a perennial subshrub of the mallow family Malvaceae native to India. It has naturalized throughout the world, and is considered an invasive weed in Africa, Australia, the southern United States, Hawaiian Islands, New Guinea, and French Polynesia. The specific name, cordifolia, refers to the heart-shaped leaf. Sida cordifolia is an erect perennial that reaches 50 to 200 cm (20 to 79 in) tall, with the entire plant covered with soft white felt-like hair that is responsible for one of its common names, "flannel weed". The stems are yellow-green, hairy, long, and slender. The yellow-green leaves are oblong-ovate, covered with hairs, and 3.5 to 7.5 cm (1.4 to 3.0 in) long by 2.5 to 6 cm (0.98 to 2.36 in) wide. The flowers are dark yellow, sometimes with a darker orange center, with a hairy 5-lobed calyx and 5-lobed corolla. As a weed, it invades cultivated and overgrazed fields, competing with more desired species and ...
Beyond Pesticides, April 23, 2012) A diverse coalition of farm groups has petitioned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to conduct a comprehensive environmental impact statement on the cumulative effects of a new generation of genetically engineered (GE) crops modified to tolerate the herbicides 2,4-D and dicamba. The Save Our Crops Coalition filed the petition in advance of an anticipated spike in applications of the two herbicides in 2013 with the commercial release of a new generation of "stacked" corn and soybean varieties, which will also be resistant to the herbicide glyphosate. In the petition, the coalition stated that 2,4-D and dicamba have been proven to be especially prone to volatilization and drift and that even extremely low residue levels can cause catastrophic damage to non-target crops as far as ten miles from the point of application. The petition raises specific concerns about the increased 2, 4-D and dicamba usage due to the timing of the herbicide applications. ...
Concentrations of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) in soils and leachates from field mini-lysimeters were monitored for up to 28 months to characterize the patterns of herbicide mobility in soils under climatic conditions of the Palouse region of the Pacific Northwest. The lysimeters contained soils from Washington, Wyoming, or Mississippi, and were treated with 1,120 or 5,600 kg/ha of a 1:1 mixture of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T n-butyl esters in 1976, 1977, or 1978. The winter of 1976-1977 was mild and relatively dry, and little leachate could be collected. However, subsequent winters were wet and the soil columns were saturated by the following springs. Less than 1 ppm of 2,4-D was found in leachates from Washington and Wyoming soils receiving the herbicide application in 1976 or 1977, though over 30 ppm was found in leachates from Washington soil treated in 1978. Over 10 ppm of 2,4-D could be found in leachates from the acidic Mississippi soil ...
Beach evening-primrose (Oenothera drummondii subsp. drummondii) is regarded as an environmental weed in eastern Queensland and south-western Western Australia, and as a potential environmental weed in South Australia. It is thought to have been introduced in ship ballast water and is primarily a weed of coastal environs (i.e. beaches and sand dunes), including many coastal reserves.. There is conflicting opinion to the environmental impact of this species in eastern Australia. During one recent study, beach evening-primrose (Oenothera drummondii subsp. drummondii) was listed in the top 100 most invasive plant species in south-eastern Queensland. Other authors do not consider it to be a serious weed because it does not significantly displace native plants, and contributes to the stabilisation of sand dunes.. However, beach evening-primrose (Oenothera drummondii subsp. drummondii) is listed as a moderately high priority species in the Environmental Weed Strategy of Western Australia. This species ...
Greetings Jeff: Yes, there are some preemergent herbicides that are labeled for tree planting practices. Some of the common preemergent herbicides I am familiar with include: Pendulum (many annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds) Oust (pre- and post emergent; some annual and biannual grasses and broadleaf weeds) Simazine (many annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds) You are required by law to follow the directions on the label of these herbicides. The aforementioned herbicides may be applied directly over the top of "dormant" trees, but not over the top of "leafed-out" trees. Again, it is very important that you follow the directions and rates listed on the herbicide label. Some of the aforementioned herbicides are not labeled for certain tree species. Here is a good resource from Wisconsin DNR: http://dnr.wi.gov/forestry/Fh/PDF/HerbicidesRegisteredforTreePlanting2006.pdf ...
