The products used to kill or remove the weeds or unwanted plants which decrease the fertility of the soil are known as herbicides. In most of the time, they are used in fields to kill the wild plants but they keep the crops unharmed. Among the herbicides tried, round up was observed to be more efficient in suppressing the growth of the weed plant by virtue of reducing plant height, biomass, chlorophyll reduction and mortality.
oil retentive processes and biodegradation kinetics are key parameters in predicting offsite transport of herbicides. Sorptive and physical entrapment processes interact with highly compartmentalized tortuous pore space to impose limitations on the availability of herbicides to the plants they are designed to kill, as well as the microorganisms required for biodegradation.
OMICS Group through its Open Access Initiative is committed to make genuine and reliable contributions to the scientific community. It follows an Open Access publication model that enables the dissemination of research articles to the global community free of cost. All the articles are distributed in any digital medium for the responsible purpose, possess subject to proper attribution of authorship and right to make small number of printed copies for the authos personal use. Journal of Biofertilizers & Biopesticides is also involved in publishing the articles which are related to Integrated Pest Management, Microbial Metagenomics, Applied Plant Genomics, Potential Bioinoculants isolation, Nitrogen fixing Microorganisms, Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria, Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza, Biodegradation, Biopesticides and Bio Insecticides. All the articles may be published as review/mini-review/ research article/ case reports/ letter to editors etc. Journal of Biofertilizers & Biopesticides addresses the study of microbial communities, agriculture, botany, biotechnology technologies and also zoology.
