Abstract

Strawberry crop is very sensitive to weed infestation, especially Stellaria media because this weed prefers cool climate, emerges in autumn and grows during winter reaching a tick vegetal cover in the spring that asphyxiates the strawberry plant that was planted in autumn. This fact is produced because this weed crawls on the soil and its stems forms adventive roots were the stems touch the soil. The Goal 4F herbicide contains 480 g/l oxyfluorfen. This herbicide active ingredient burns the green parts where it falls because it breaks the cellular membrane. Our experiment tried increasing concentrations that have succeeded to destroy annual weeds, including Stellaria media that have recently emerged and did not affected the strawberry plant.
