  Field studies were conducted in 2003 and 2004 at the experimental site of the Department of plant Science, University of Ado-Ekiti (7401N, 5141E) to evaluate the effects of herbicide spray programmes and hand hoeing on weed control in maize. Pre-plant glyphosate (360 g aqueous solution) application to weed regrowth after land preparation followed by early post emergence application of atrazine (480 F) to maize gave the best weed density and biomass reduction and the highest maize yield. The density of grass weeds was lowest in the glyphosate applied plots while the lowest broadleaved weed density was recorded in atrazine sprayed plots. Glyphosate application supplemented with hoe weeding gave comparable weed reduction and good maize yield with the combination of glyphosate and atrazine. It is concluded that effective weed control in grass land maize production could be achieved by a pre-plant glyphosate application followed by post emergence atrazine application to improve maize yield.

  Green biomass of Tithonia diversifolia was incorporated into 3 groups of soil (degraded soil, used soil and fallowed soil) with the aim of finding its potential on soil fertility for maize (Zea mays) improvement. There was higher vegetative and reproductive growth of maize in the Tithonia incorporated soil. Early maize growth rate in terms of height and stem girth were better under tithonia applied soil than under the NPK fertilizer soils. Maize cob and grain yields were greatly increased by tithonia biomass than NPK fertilizer. Fallow + Tithonia gave cob and grain weight of 148.2 g pot 1,114.0 g pot 1 in 2003 and 147.5 g pot 1, 115.1 g pot 1 in 2004. An increase of 94 and 88% grain yield was obtained with tithonia incorporation while 79 and 80% grain yield was obtained in the NPK fertilizer applied soils in 2003 and 2004, respectively under the degraded soil group. It was observed therefore, that degraded soils could be recovered for crop production at low cost with tithonia than high cost of NPK fertilizer.
