Management of Bidens pilosa and Commelina benghalensis in organic corn cultivation under no-tillage
Weed interference on growth and yield of transgenic maize 1. This page was last edited on 31 Decemberat However, the total number of cojmelina of B. The flowers are subtended by bracts with their edges fused to a length of about 10 mm to form a flattened funnel-shaped spathe, 1. When several references are cited, they may give conflicting information on the status.
Elongation may occur to increase comnelina height induced by competition of light Karimmojeni et al. A good reference to find officially recognized common names of plants considered to be noxious weeds for different states. Description Top of page C. Wilson, ; EPPO, Chemical Control Due to the variable regulations around de- registration of pesticides, we are for the moment not benhalensis any specific chemical control recommendations.
This different behavior is due to the intrinsic properties of each species, because they are totally different in terms of their development and ability to survive in harsh environmental conditions. Waterhouse, ; EPPO, The rate of reproduction of this plant rivals that of any agronomic weed Prostko, ; Webster et al.
Vegetation regeneration, depth of germination and seed dormancy in Commelina benghalensis L. This may have favored the recovery of the former after the second mowing. It is observed that the control treatments B. The corn variety cultivated was UFVMoriginated from open pollination. They may be produced to survive stressful periods e. Mowings performed at 14 and 25 DAE prevented the production of B. Freshly shed aerial seeds have a dormancy depending on an impermeable seedcoat, but will germinate following scarification or pricking of the seed.

Genes of interest are inserted into genetically modified organisms, providing a given crop with desired traits. This is indicative that the aforementioned variable is more sensitive to intraspecific competition in those species than in S. As the interaction between weed species and the management techniques was unfolded, it was found that the treatment with two mowings 2W had lower average plant height in relation to others, and it was considered the best result in the growth control of these plants, especially B.
