Many of the compounds produced by green plants that are not involved in primary metabolism are observed to function as chemical warfare agents against pest and competing plants. Many such natural compounds possess to offer the basis for commercially successful herbicides (Duke 1986).
Rice is grown under different agro-climatic condition and varying cultivation systems in india.Accordingly the floristic composition of weeds also vary invariably sledges contibute a part.Cyprus difformis are the two most frequently observed sledges species in rice in india.
As indicated in one of the definitions, weeds are plants whose virtues are yet to be discovered. Different plants have been rediscovered for their uses at varying points of time commencing from the early stages of human civilization. Use of indigenous plants for varying purposes may be rediscovered if the traditional history of that locality in using the fauna is reviewed.
India has a geographic area of 328 million hectares accounting for 2 per cent of Earth’s surface. Yet it contributes for over 5 per cent of the world’s bio-diversity. The rich diversity of flora and fauna in India could be attributed to the wide variety of landforms and climates resulting in habitats ranging from tropical to temperate and from alpine to desert.
