Project Body:


ABSTRACT

The effects of five weed management techniques and a weed free control on weed infestation andon the growth and yield of a plantain landrace (Musa spp. AAB Agbagba) were evaluated during the two cropping seasons of 2005 and 2006 at Nsukka, Nigeria. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with six treatments and replicated four times. The treatments comprised sixweed management techniques, which consisted of slashing at 8-weekly intervals, mulching with sawdustalone, use of glyphosate + intermittent slashing, use of sawdust mulching + glyphosate, use of glyphosate alone and a weed-free (by hoeing) control.
