Efficacy of Different Treatments on Some Weed Species in Strawberry

Ozhan Boz

In this study the efficacy of solarization (S), dazomet (D) and metam-sodium (MS) treatments on some weed species and their potential as alternative to methyl bromide (MB) was investigated in strawberry growing areas in Aydin province of Turkey. Efficacies of treatments were variable for weed species. Total five weed species, namely common purslane, annual bluegrass, common chamomille, horseweed and shepherd’s purse were considered in this study. Highest efficacy on weeds was provided by MB application, but S is a safe alternative to MB under suitable climatic conditions, because its application is economic and safer to environment and user. In case of horseweed none of the treatments reduced the coverage of this species significantly.
