Abstract — I nte rcopping is oe f the s ust ainableag lturlfactors.TheSPAD metercan be used to predict nitrogen indexreliably, it may also be a useful tool for assessing the relative impactof weeds on crops. In order to study the effect of weeds on SPAD incorn ( Zea mays L.), sweet basil ( Ocimum basilicum L.) and borage( Borago officinalis L.) in intercropping system, a factorial experimentwas conducted in three replications in 2011. Experimental factorswere included intercropping of corn with…

Seeding method and rate influence on weed suppression in aerobic rice

Among the seeding rates, SR300 produced the highest grain yield followed by SR200 and SR400, and Weed free treatment performed better with a yield advantage of 23% over weedy treatment.

Effect of Nitrogen Addition and Weed Interference on Soil Nitrogen and Corn Nitrogen Nutrition

Although weed competition for factors other than N may be the major contributor to corn biomass reduction, the chlorophyll meter was a useful diagnostic tool for assessing the overall negative effects of weeds on corn productivity.

Dynamic analysis of competition and complementarity for light and N use to understand the yield and the protein content of a durum wheat–winter pea intercrop

This work analysed intercrop species dynamics for growth, light and N acquisition in southwest France to understand how intercropping induced higher cereal growth during winter, which led to increase interspecies competition by reducing pea light absorption and, consequently, its biomass production.

Effect and underlying mechanisms of pea-cereal intercropping on the epidemic development of ascochyta blight

A pea-cereal intercrop could potentially limit direct yield loss and reduce the quantity of primary inoculum available for subsequent pea crops through a modification of the microclimate within the intercrop canopy.

Leaf relative chlorophyll content as an indicator parameter to predict nitrogen fertilization in maize

The development of a portable chlorophyll meter (SPAD 502), that takes instantaneous measurements of greenness without leaf destruction, has emerged as a new tool to assess plant N status and the variation in SPAD readings were highest in the early stages of plant growth.

Effect of plant density and nitrogen fertilizer on growth, yield and fruit quality of sweet pepper ( Capsicum annum L.)

It was observed that fertilization with 50 kg N/ha resulted to the highest fruit volume and plant yield, and there were significant differences between fruitVolume and fruit weight by interaction between plant density and nitrogen treatments.

The effect of ryegrass (Lolium italicum L.) stand densities on its competitive interaction with cleavers (Galium aparine L.)

The rank order of the competitive ability of Italian ryegrass was SD4 > SD3 > SD2 > SD1 under optimal weather conditions for crop development and under climatic stress conditions, however, neither effect of ryEGrass densities nor cleavers was pronounced on competitive ability.

Yield potential and land-use efficiency of wheat and faba bean mixed intercropping

Mixed intercropping of wheat with faba bean may increase total yield and revenue, reduce weed and disease pressure, increase land-use efficiency, and thereby enhance sustainability of crop production in Ethiopian highlands.
