Utilization of Herbicidal Treatments to Overcome Weed Problems in Peppermint (<i>Mentha piperita L.</i>) Cultivation under Egyptian Conditions
Keywords:Herbicides, Peppermint, Mentha piperita L, Weed problems, Egyptian conditions.
Abstract---Two field trials were conducted on farrow-irrigated Peppermint (Mentha piperita L.) at Elhagger-Beheira governorate, during the growing winter seasons 2012 and 2013, to evaluate the efficiency of certain herbicidal treatments in controlling weeds associated with mint fields. Nine Herbicidal Treatments were applied post â€“cutting of mints beside the un-weeded check was also included in each of the two seasons to solve the weed problem in mints field. The effectiveness of the herbicidal treatments was depends upon the weed flora. The herbicidal treatment which effective against broad leaf weeds in mints was Bentazone, Oxadiargyl and Metribuzine. And the effective against grassy weeds was Oxadiargyl and Metribuzine. The recommended herbicidal treatments against total weeds grown in mints according to the results of this work were Oxadiargyl and Metribuzine which gave the highest weed control and increased the mints yield.
