3356. Jain, J.M., G. Narayanasamy, M.C. Sarkar and M.N. Datta. 1980. An evaluation of nitrification retardation property of Citrullus colosynthis.. J. Indian Soc. Soil Sci., 28(4):480-484.
An evaluation of nitrification retardation property of Citrullus colosynthis cake and its influence on yield and N uptake by wheat. Citrullus colosynthis oilcake was tested as nitrification retarder under laboratory and greenhouse conditions. The same showed NH4-N conservation when applied at the rate of 5 and 10% by weight of urea. Higher rate (20%) of the cake resulted in NO2-N accumulation leading to lower N recovery by wheat.

About 40-45 kg N/ha could be saved by pre-emergence application of tribunil over the conventional method of weeding.
6293. Singh, H.P. and J.P. Agerwal. 1982. Studies on nitrogen fertilization and weed management in wheat.. Indian J. Agron., 27(1):71-77.
Nitrogen fertilization did not affect composition, density and dry matter accumulation in weeds. The concentration of N in weeds tended to increase with nitrogen application. Tribunil for weed control. Liberal doses of fertilizers and frequent irrigation have been adopted to realize maximum yields in Mexican dwarf wheats, and have stimulated the rank growth of weeds. The weed flora of wheat has greatly changed in the recent past and some new obnoxious non-legume weeds like Phalaris minor and Avena fatua have come into prominence. Similarity to wheat plant in early stages.
6301. Singh, R.A., O.P. Singh and M. Singh. 1976. Effect of soil compaction and nitrogen placement on weed populations.. Plant and Soil, 44:87-96.
Field experiements showed that soil compaction did not affect wheat yield significantly under rainfed conditions. Weed population was significantly reduced due to soil compaction. Compaction decreased total moisture use and increased water use efficiency. Weed population was not affected due to nitrogen placement. Under rainfed conditions, deep placement of nitrogen was important for increasing the efficiency of fertilizer as well as water utilization by wheat crop.
