In the meeting it was decided that they will work together to create awareness among farming community for olive cultivation.
The participants said that olive can be grown on marginal lands and we should maximize the area under olive cultivation for better use of natural resources.
T1 = 1 MB plowing + 8 cultivations, T2 = 1 MB plowing + 4 cultivations, T3 = 1 disc harrowing + 4 cultivations, T4 = 1 chisel plowing + glyphosate, T5 = 1 MB plowing + glyphosate, T6 = 1 disc harrowing + glyphosate, T7 = no-till + glyphosate.
In first treatment, deep tillage with moldboard plough at the onset of moon soon was done followed by eight shallow cultivations with cultivator applied after each rainfall including seedbed preparation.
arvensis was found for single mould board ploughing integrated with glyphosate (1 MB plowing + glyphosate) which was significantly similar for no tilled treatments applied with glyphosate (No-till + glyphosate) and single MB ploughing following cultivation four times (1 MB plowing + 4 cultivations).
arvensis was found at 0-10 cm soil depth during 2012-2013, where once disc harrowing was practiced integrated with glyphosate (1 Disc harrowing + glyphosate); whereas, it was lowest at 20-30 cm soil depth during 2013-2014, where once MB plowing was practiced following cultivations four times (1 MB + 4 cultivations).
