Herbicidal Properties of the Extract of Gliricidia Sepium, A Fabaceae
I.A Owokotomo and O.F Afuye
 
Abstract: The herbicidal efficacy of the crude extract (5% aqueous suspension) of Gliricidia sepium was investigated in Petri dish assays. The extract was tested on 3 monocots: Maize (zea mays), cowpea (vigna unguiculata) and okro (okra spp). The extract acted as contact herbicide by inhibiting the germination and shoot growth of maize and cowpea but had no inhibitory effect on the germination and shoot growth of okra.
