Weed science in the tropics. Summary: Field experiments were conducted in the early and late cropping seasons of 1979 on a loamysand Oxic Ustropept in a subhumid environment in Nigeria, using 40000, 50000 and 30000 + 4000. More).
Book Publishing WeChat. Since the early 1990s, the weed has started to spread and invade many parts of the country causing significant damage to many natural and semi natural ecosystems. I. O. Akobundu, Weed Science in the Tropics: Principles and Practices, John Wiley and Sons, London, 1987. has been cited by the following article: TITLE: The Distribution and Problems of the Invasive Alien Plant, Mimosa diplotricha C. Wright ex Sauvalle (Mimosaceae) in Nigeria. The different control options used by farmers to control Mimosa diplotricha in Nigeria are discussed.
Principles and Practices. Bridges (1992) surveyed weed losses in 46 crops in the United States. For both categories of weed control, approximately 82% of the monetary loss occurred in field crops, 5% in noncitrus fruit crops, 3% in citrus crops, 1% in tree nuts, and 9% in vegetables (Bridges, 1992).

The effect of fallow type and tillage on the weed seedbank in the soil was assessed in 1995 and 1996 at Ibadan, southwest Nigeria.
This book gives a great background to managing weeds. However, it does focus on management in crop lands
This book gives a great background to managing weeds. However, it does focus on management in crop lands. There is excellent information on many different management techniques from mechanical control to the use of herbicides. Many chapters are also devoted to the biological mechanisms that make herbicides effective. For anyone interested in restoration and weed management in noncrop lands, this book may not be worth the money. You can get a lot of the same information off herbicide labels and the internet.
The science of weed control has advanced more during the past 50 years than in the previous 100 centuries. The first section deals with the basic concepts underlying material that is presented in the following sections. In this book, the old reliable weed control methods are integrated with modern chemical techniques. Together, these practices result in more effective and less expensive weed control programs.
