Article
This study was undertaken to investigate the integration effects of pretilachlor, oxadiazon, and dimethenamid with or without glyphosate in stale seedbed method to control weedy rice in wet seeded rice. The study, conducted in 2018 and 2019, comprised two seedbed treatments in main plots: with and without glyphosate (850 g ae ha ⁻¹ ), and four sub...

Parthenium weed is an invasive weed species of economic importance worldwide. Native to the American tropics, the infestation ability of Parthenium weed to a new habitat is largely influenced by environmental factors. Despite Parthenium weed invasion in Malaysia dated back to 2013, investigation on its ecological behavior is still lacking. Hence, e...

Weedy rice (Oryza spp.) has emerged as a global threat to rice production in direct-seeded rice (DSR) systems. It is a difficult-to-control weed in DSR because of its close similarity to cultivated rice and lack of in-crop selective herbicide options for its control. Therefore integration of multiple tactics at multiple times (prior to and after ri...
Article
Weedy rice (Oryza spp.) is a major nuisance to rice farmers all over the world. Although the emergence of weedy rice in East Malaysia on the island of Borneo is very recent, the threat to rice yield has reached an alarming stage. Using 47,027 genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS)-derived SNPs and candidate gene analysis of the plant architecture domestica...

A total of 452 rice farmers from three main granary areas of Muda Agricultural Development Authority (MADA), Kemubu Agricultural Development Authority (KADA), and Integrated Agricultural Development Area Barat Laut Selangor (IADA BLS) were surveyed in 2019. The goal was to determine farmers’ knowledge and management practices of weedy rice ( Oryza...

The introduction of Clearfield technology allows the use of imidazolinone (IMI) herbicides to control weedy rice. Imidazolinone herbicides stop the acetolactate synthase (ALS) enzyme from synthesizing branched-chain amino acids, resulting in the death of the plant. Since the launch of Clearfield technology in Malaysia in 2010, many farmers have rep...
Book
Buku ini difokuskan kepada petani yang ingin melaksanakan penanaman padi hibrid. Selain itu, buku ini dapat menbantu para pensyarah, penyelidik dan pelajar universiti untuk dijadikan bahan rujukan dan panduan dalam industri padi dan beras.

The combination of mulch and herbicide is a promising method for weed control which could reduce the frequency of hand weeding. This study was conducted to evaluate the phytotoxic effects of Elaeis guneensis var. tenera (oil palm) frond (OPF) mulch in combination with several pre emergence herbicides on the inhibition of goosegrass (Eleusine indica...
Article
Full-text available
A combination of oil palm frond (OPF) mulch and imazathapyr has been shown to provide great inhibition of weed but its phytotoxicity may be influenced by imazethapyr placement on the OPF mulch and rainfall amount. This study aimed to evaluate effects of herbicide placement and rainfall amount on the phytotoxic activity of imazethapyr in combination...

A potent male attractant of sweetpotato weevil helps in monitoring and control of sweetpotato weevil in many production areas around the world. At present, it has not been used in Malaysia. Cost of the components of a trapping system is a major constraint in the adoption of male lure‐baited trapping by growers in Malaysia. Seven field trapping expe...

The Clearfield® rice production system is an effective management tool for weedy rice and other weeds in the direct-seeded rice culture. However, if farmers cultivating the Clearfield® rice disregard stewardship recommendations, the industry could face a problem of herbicide-resistant weedy rice which would occur through the selection of outcrosses...
Article
The agriculture sector remains a significant development factor in Malaysia. Oil palm and rubber are the two major crops contributing to national development in terms of export earnings, and rice is vital for the national food consumption. However, weeds continue to be an important constraint for oil palm, rubber, and rice production. Weed manageme...

Introduction of new weed management strategy for coconut plantation in Malaysia is essential since the current weed control methods are less effective and highly herbicide dependent, thus leading to development of herbicide resistance in weeds as well as environmental and human health concerns. Thus, the present study aimed to evaluate the phytotox...

This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of sequential application of slashing and glyphosate for drought grass control under glasshouse and field conditions. Sequential application of slashing and glyphosate at 1.83 kg a.i. ha-1 provided at least 70% reduction of node production, sprouting of nodes, stolon number, stolon length and viable s...

The presence of abundant agricultural residues in Malaysia prompted the need to utilise these wastes to overcome environmental pollution. This study was conducted to determine the effects of organic mulches from the crop residues of oil palm, rice, coconut and pineapple on the shoot emergence and seedling growth of goosegrass (Eleusine indica). It...

There is a great deal of diversity among phoretic association particularly in mesostigmatic mites that exploited insect host to complete their dispersal strategy. Similarly, the red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, also has been used as a carrier by the phoretic mites. In this study, we found Centrouropoda almerodai (Uropodidae), Macrocheles...

Barnyardgrass has been the most frequently reported troublesome weed in rice fields because it is an aggressive invader that is difficult to control and reduces rice yields significantly. A laboratory study was conducted to determine the effects of sunflower leaf extract and pre-emergence herbicides, pretilachlor and thiobencarb, on shoot emergence...

The increasing use of synthetic chemicals for pest control in rice has become an overwhelming economical border, and more important, it could pose a serious threat of the environment. In addition, the extensive use of synthetic herbicides has been the cause for the evolution of herbicide-resistant barnyardgrass worldwide. This weed species is the m...
