Uddin, Md Kamal and Juraimi, Abdul Shukor and Othman, Radziah and Shamsuzzaman, S. M. and Anwar, Md Parvez (2017) Sedge weeds control in tropical turf using sea water. Bangladesh Journal of Botany, 46 (2). 795 - 798. ISSN 0253-5416; ESSN: 2079-9926


Research was designed to reduce herbicide use by replacing post emergence herbicides with readily available sea water to control tropical weeds. Results showed that 5 species viz., Cyperus compressus L., Cyperus iria L., Fimbristylis miliaceae Vahl., Fimbristylis ovata J. Kern. and Scirpus juncoides Roxb. were very susceptible and effectively controlled (100%) with 72 dS/m salinity treatment, but. 2 species viz. Cyperus aromaticus Ridley. and Cyperus rotundus L. were extremely tolerant to the salinity level of 72 dS/m.
