Effect of spray application of glyphosate on morphological characters of Hibiscus cannabinus Linn.

Abstract

In present study, the herbicidal activities of glyphosate on Hibiscus cannabinus Linn. have been studied. The Morphological responses might produce some light on the manner by which this compound affected on plants. The plants were sprayed with aqueous solution of different concentrations of herbicide from 100 to 5000 ppm. Glyphosate was efficient in killing the weed. The lethal dose of glyphosate was 1200 ppm.
