EFFECT OF SEVERAL HERBICIDES ON GLADIOLUS PLANTS CULTIVATED FROM CORMS AND CORMELS

M. Mynett, M. Jagusz
Several herbicides were used after planting gladiolus cv.Eurovision corms size 8–10 cm and cormels size <4 cm. Metazachlor (1.5 kg/ha), pendimetaline (1.32 kg/ha) and pendimetaline + metamitron (1.32 + 2.1 kg/ha) caused no injury to plants originating from corms and cormels. On plots treated with linuron (1.5 kg/ha), linuron + napropamide (1.5 + 1.5 kg/ha), linuron + fluazifop-P-butyl (1.5 + 1.5 kg/ha) and cyanazine (1.5 kg/ha) necrosis of leaf tips was observed, but without a decrease of weight of the cormels. The same herbicides used in corms caused no injury. Terbacil (0.8 kg/ha) caused severe damages of gladiolus plants originating from either corms and cormels.
