It turns out this plant Is kochia (Kochia scoparia
), a noxious weed from Eurasia.
This can be attributed to Kochia scoparia
, an introduced agricultural weed common in surrounding crop fields and highly disturbed areas.
Enhanced mineralization of [14C] atrazine in Kochia scoparia
Rhizosferic soil from a pesticide-contaminated site.
Cultivated as green manure, residues of yellow sweetclover effectively suppress weeds during fallow season and control the perennial weeds dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) and perennial sowthistle (Sonchus arvensis L.), as well as the annuals kochia (Kochia scoparia
L.), flixweed (Descurainia sophia L.), Russian thistle (Salsola iberica), and downy brome (Bromus tectorum) (Blackshaw et al., 2001).
(2006) revealed that chloroform extract from Kochia scoparia
(L.) Schrad caused high mite mortality.
Effect of limited irrigation with saline water on seed yield and seed quality of two local population of Kochia scoparia
Kochia (Kochia scoparia
), Canada fleabane (Conyza canadensis), and both common and giant ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia and Ambrosia trifida, respectively) are four resistant species resident in Canada; and of these, kochia and Canada fleabane are present in the Okanagan.
Grazed plots were characterized by Bouteloua gracilis, while nongrazed plots were characterized by Equisetum laevigatum and Kochia scoparia
farnesiana pollen extract, and cross-reactivity of this plant with the five most allergenic pollens in arid and semiarid areas (Prosopis juliflora, Salsola kali, Amaranthus retroflexus, Chenopodium album, and Kochia scoparia
) is not well documented 2, 5, 9,10].
Outra possibilidade e que a microbiota associada as raizes dessas plantas possam, alem de tolerar os herbicidas imazetapir e imazapique, utiliza-los como substrato para seu metabolismo, como ocorre com os microrganismos existentes rizosfera da especie Kochia scoparia
, fitorremediadora de atrazine (PERKOVICH et al., 1996), e com Helianthus annus, potencialmente fitorremediadora de sulfentrazone (BELO et al., 2011).
The halophyte Kochia scoparia
has attracted attention in a wide range of research in diverse regions (Lopez-Aguilar et al, 2003a; Kafi et al, 2010).
