The effectiveness of lamtoro(Leucaena sp.) leaf extract on the growth of weed in young tea
A research to determine the effectiveness of lamtoro leaf extract on the growth of weeds in young tea planÂtation was carried out in Pasir Sarongge Experimental Garden and Plant ProÂtecÂtion Laboratory RITC Gambung from June to December 2009. Researches on the effectiveÂness of lamtoro leaf extracts on the germination of weedâ€™s seed, and on the growth of weeds in the field, were conducted. Lamtoro leaf extract treatÂÂment at various concentrations tried, suppressed the germination of seeds of broadÂleaf weeds (hareuga and babadotan) in the laboratory. In general, the germination suppÂression were increases with increasing the concentration of the extracts tested. Spraying of lamtoro leaf extract (Leucaena sp.) starting at concentration of 7.50% resulÂted better control effect and significantly different compared to controls. In addition, spraying treatment of lamtoro leaf extract could reduce the number of weed species.
