THE POSSIBILITY OF MAIZE GLUTEN APPLICATION FOR WEED CONTROL IN MAIZE AND SOYBEAN
Šeremešić, S., Lj. Nikolić, D. Milošev, M. Živanov, Ž. Dolijanović, M. Vasiljević
Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the effects of maize gluten on the weeds number and dry biomass in the maize and soybean experiment. Pre-emergence maize gluten application resulted with an effective weed control in maize, whereas the soybean had the significant loss of plants, due to the gluten fitotoxicity. Post-emergence application was found to be less successful compared with pre-emergence application particularly for soybean. Panicum cruss-galli l. was the most frequent weed in the both experiment. maize gluten rate of 300 g m2 could be recommended in control of the broad leaf weeds in maize cropping as an alternative herbicide thus a substitute for mineral nitrogen. our research can contribute to the improvement of the weed control in sustainable cropping systems.
