EFECTS OF HERBICIDES ON BARLEY SEEDS GERMINATION DEPEND ON GROWTH STAGE
An experiment was carried out including three barley varieties (reks, NS 293 and egej), treated with six herbicides (2,4-D, MCPP+dicamba, triasulfuron+dicamba, 2,4-D+florasulam, amidosulfuron+iodosulfuron and florasulam+flumetsulam) in the three different growth stages (tillering, first node and second node). The aim of this experiment was to consider the influence of herbicides (applied in different growth stages) on germination of barley seeds.
In all experimental years herbicides did not significantly influence barley seed germination. The growth stage during herbicide application did not affect germination of barley. If conditions do not allow herbicides to be used in the optimal period, it can be used until second node stage, without having a negative impact on the barley seeds germinations.
