Abstract

The development of agroecosystems that can provide multiple ecosystem services with a reduced need of external inputs, requires management practices that foster ecological processes to enhance soil quality and crop productivity. We assessed the direct and indirect impacts of farmers' management...

Abstract

Reconciling crop productivity and biodiversity maintenance is one of the main challenges of agriculture worldwide. Weed management is recognized to be a key point for ecological intensification in agriculture because weeds can generate severe yield losses but also represent the base of agricultural ...

Abstract

Two field experiments with onion (Allium cepa L.) cultivated by the "seed-to-seed" and "bulb-to-seed" methods for the organic seed production were carried out in central Italy in order to evaluate the effects of some mechanical methods (harrowing, hoeing, hoeing-ridging, split-hoeing,...

Abstract

Mulching is a management technique to control weeds in organic and integrated tomato production. Our experiment was designed to investigate the impact of organic mulch combined with irrigation on the weed species composition and weed seed bank of open-field tomato. For three consecutive years...

Abstract

Farmers facing the same production situation may have different farming objectives and thus farming practices. However, the latter are rarely precisely described since studies often use a unique indicator of soil use intensity, showing a weak explanatory value of biotic pressures. Our aim was to...

Abstract

We investigated the height and suppression status of planted trees in young sugi (Cryptomeria japonica) plantations that were weeded every year in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan, to develop a criterion to determine the need for weeding. Plantations with varying competing vegetation types were studied, and...

Abstract

A field experiment was carried out at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during Kharif and Rabi seasons of 2018-19 to study the effect of altered crop geometry without changing the total plant population with integrated weed management methods in irrigated maize (Zea mays L.) and their...

AbstractFull Text

Field experiments were conducted to study the combined effect of brown manuring with post emergence herbicide on weed management in planted sugarcane. Weeds are one of the major biotic stress and its management was the very costliest agronomic input in the successful crop production. In sugarcane,...
