Özet

Novel spray Jungle rice (Echinochloa colonum (L.) Link) is a common weed species in maize cultivation. High yield losses occur if fight with this weed is not achieved. In this research, sprayings with were conducted with two broadcast application types (Standard XR spraying nozzle, Air induction nozzles) and three band application types (Even Flat Fan nozzles, Under Leaf Banding Application and Row Application Kit method) in total five different methods. Comparisons were made under 3 different aplication volumes (200, 300 ve 400 l.ha(-1)) with a post-emergence herbicide. During the maize growing season, Jungle rice counts were done during different stages of maize before and after sprayings. All methods and volumes resulted with reductions in Jungle rice numbers compared to control. This reduction was highest at 400 l.ha(-1) application volume. The most appropirate method to control Jungle rice during early critical growth stage of maize was Row Application Kit method (band application) at 400 l.ha(-1) lapplication volume.
