Abstract

The research focused on the evaluation of Siam as alternative bioherbicide for weed control. Siam bioherbicide was compared with chemical herbicide (Force Uron), as well as their combination. Results showed that Siam bioherbicide was superior in controlling weed population in the cowpea plot. Combination of siam and chemical herbicide at 50:50 also showed impressive performance; an indication of good synergy between bioherbicide and chemical herbicide.
