Abstract:The efficacy of glyphosate, acetic, fatty acids and corn gluten meal as herbicidal treatments on Vincetoxicum rossicum, an invasive weed displacing native plants and animals, was tested under controlled conditions. Corn gluten meal was a very effective pre-emergent herbicide while the fatty acids solution was the most successful post-emergent treatment.
