Efficacy of microbial bio weedicide for control of weeds in sugarcane

Ghodke SD, Shinde AS and Patil PM
Microbial weedicide for the management of agricultural weeds is an eco-friendly approach. A worldwide programme has been growing up to control the invasive weed species for the better crop production and stable ecosystem. In India, yield losses due to weeds are more than those from pests and disease. Bioweedicide can be the best replacement for all the methods and is the safest method but not used in agriculture till date. Many fungi and bacteria produce several elements that are toxic to weeds in sugarcane. Bacteria isolated from diseased weeds were used as bioweedicide and consortium was prepared. Leaf detachment assay, mini plot and field trials studies were carried out to test the efficacy of bioweedicide. Effect of bioweedicide showed yellowing, scorching and blackening of leaves within 24 to 72 hours after foliar spray.
