Abstracts
The effect of weed density on the growth and reproductive performance of Zea mays everta using Euphorbia heterophylla as the test weed was investigated. The result of the experiment revealed that there was no significant difference between the control and the treatments, as well as among the treatments in the early growth performance of popcorn for the first four weeks of planting, but as from the fifth week upward, there was a significant difference between the control and the treatments as well as among the treatments and the difference was observed on the leaf length, leaf number, leaf width, stem girth and leaf dry weight. For the reproductive performance, there was significant difference between the control and the treatments but there was no significant difference among the treatments observed in the fruit number, cob weight, weight of 100 seeds, cob length and cob circumference, also there was no significant difference between the control and the treatments observed in the number of seed rows per cob.
