    Author(s): Zenebech Bizualewa* and Getahun Alemayehub

    Maize is the most highly distributed cereal in the World and it is multipurpose crop (used as human food, animals and poultry feed, and in industrial products. In spite of the huge importance of maize, its productivity is quite low (the yield of maize obtained in Ethiopia is far below expectation) due to numerous factors which include weed infestation. Weed is one the most important yield limiting factor. The present study was initiated to determine the weed flora, prevalence, distribution and frequency of weed in the surveyed crop fields. The Survey was conducted at irrigated maize production area of Gode and Kelafo districts, Shebelle zone, Ethiopia, during 2022 cropping seasons. The districts were purposefully selected based on cropping system where the maize is major crop. The assessment was done using weed counting for important points related to weed and quadrate with a size.. View More»
