Abstract

Field studies were conducted in 1991 and 1992 at the Faculty Farm of the U.A.E. Univ., Al-Ain, to evaluate the effectiveness of soil solarization for weed management in naturally infested plots of lettuce, and on subsequent planting of garlic. Solarization for 2 mo during the hottest summer period effectively suppressed weeds during the growing season of head lettuce. In subsequently-planted garlic, no significant effect was observed between solarized and nonsolarized treatments.
