Abstract:   (10714 Views)

In order to find the critical period of weed control, the best time of weed control beginning (i.e. herbicide application time), and the length of weed control period (i.e. herbicide persistency) in corn, field experiments were conducted in Bajgah and Kooshkak in Fars Province in 1995 using a randomized complete block design with 14 treatments and four replications. Treatments consisted of different times of weed control beginnings (20, 30, 40, and 50 days after corn emergence), different duration of weed control periods (10, 20, and 30 days), a weedy check, and a weed-free check during the period of corn growth.

 In Kooshkak, a 10-day duration of weed control period had significantly lower corn yields than 20 and 30-day periods. In Bajgah, a 10-day weed control period had significantly lower corn yields than a 30-day period. Time of weed control beginning was not significant at both locations however, the interaction between beginning time and the duration period of weed control was significant. It appears in both locations that a minimum 20-day control period at the initial stages of corn and weed growth, and a minimum 30-day control period before corn pollination are necessary to prevent corn yield losses. In order to prevent corn leaf area decline at both locations, a 20-day weed control period until 40 days after crop emergence is necessary.
