Abstract

Greenhouse experiments were conducted to determine effects of shade, water and a combination of either watering frequency or shade and glyphosate on growth of Paspalum conjugatum Berg. (sour grass). Plant height, shoot and root dry weight and numbers of leaves and tillers decreased as light and water levels decreased. The combined effect of glyphosate application and reduced watering frequency influenced shoot and root growth of plants receiving daily watering. Glyphosate had less effect on shoot and root dry weight and injury ratings of sour grass grown under water stress. Reduction in the growth of sour grass treated with 0.2 kg/ha glyphosate was greater under shade (52% and 69%) than under exposed conditions (0% and 36% shade). Visible injury to sour grass with 0.05 kg/ha glyphosate was greater under 69% shade than under exposed conditions.
