Abstract

Glyphosate (Round-up 36% ai) low rate on annual weeds in Kenya coffee.

Abstract

In a trial in mixed Arabica coffee cv., glyphosate 36% a.i. applied with a knapsack sprayer at 0.5-1 litre/ha in 80-100 litres water using a Lumark An 1.0 nozzle effectively controlled annual weeds, including Bidens pilosa and Parthenium hysterophorus. This treatment resulted in >50% savings in chemical and water compared with conventional glyphosate treatments in coffee.
