Soil solarization in West-Cameroon: effect on weed control, some chemical properties and pathogens of the soil


, : Soil solarization in West-Cameroon: effect on weed control, some chemical properties and pathogens of the soil. Acta Horticulturae ( 255): 169-175

The effects of soil solarization were studied under local field conditions during the long dry season (3 months) in the main vegetable producing area of Cameroon. The combined effects of ploughing in the previous crop, irrigation and soil tarping were also investigated. Weeds, e.g. Imperata cylindrica were very well controlled by soil tarping with a transparent polyethylene sheet (0.03 mm) and this effect was maintained until complete covering of the soil by the next groundnut crop.
