Abstract:

Testing techniques to reduce weed infestation is a crucial step in developing direct tree seedling systems. The use of pre-emergence herbicides may be an alternative to manual weeding techniques, but so far, information on how they affect native tree species based nurseries is scarce. We established an experiment to know the major weed flora and evaluated the effect of pre and post emergent herbicide on weed suppression of secondary nursery of Tectona grandis and Pterocarpus santalinus. A total of 17 weed species belonging to 12 families were recorded among which Synedrella nudiflora, Bidens pilosa, Cynodon dactylon and Mallow species were more frequently recorded. Overall our results suggest that, of all tested herbicides reduced weed cover. Of the tested herbicide, Diuron and Pendimethalin showed the most effective weed control indicating that future experiments should increase the number of species tested as well as investigate how seed traits can affect the species response to different herbicides.
