abstract
Fertiliser amendments can impact weed populations in a variety of ways. This study evaluated the effects of 12-year-long applications of different fertilisation systems on size and composition of the weed seedbank in a conventionally managed maize monoculture field. Fertilisation systems included all factorial combinations of two dairy cattle slurry rates, three vegetable, fruit and garden waste compost rates, and three synthetic N fertiliser rates. Soil samples were taken in each subplot in May 2008 after sowing and prior to herbicide application. Residues recovered from soil samples were tested for weed seedling emergence to characterise soil seedbanks. Total weed seedbank density was affected by mineral N fertilisation, but not by compost or animal slurry application. Weed seedbank composition was related to compost amendment and mineral N fertilisation. Annual compost amendments reduced seedbank density of some persistent species (e.g., Chenopodium album and Solanum nigrum) irrespective of mineral N fertilisation. Compost is a promising tool for incorporation into integrated weed control strategies aimed at reducing weed seedbank persistence.
