Abstract

Rice weed control with granular herbicides.

Abstract

Granular and e.c formulations of molinate + thiobencarb each at 1.8 kg a.i./ha gave good control of Echinochloa crus-galli in a trial in flooded rice in NW Italy. No differences between the 2 formulations were evident in terms of the grain yields obtained. Compared with a spinning disc spreader, a tractor-mounted pneumatic applicator achieved a more even distribution of granules with lower residues in both soil and water.
