Abstract

SIMAZINE (PRINCEP), a persistent pre-emergence herbicide, has given broad-spectrum weed control in orchard crops. Generally it has been used by orchardists with excellent results. As it depends on water to activate it and move it into the soil, simazine's effectiveness is dependent on soil environment and the cultural practices employed.
