Abstract: 
Trials, each consisting of 25 different treatments were laid down at five sites in the Trans Nzoia District to compare some new and old herbicides with hand weeding. The control yields were quite high which was attributed to the fact that land was well prepared. Clean hand weeding increased yields by almost 50 percent. No other methods were significantly better than this. Eptam showed some promise for the control of water grass, the main problem at Strong, Endebess, but the cost was considerably more than that of hand-weeding. Atrazine gave good weed control but was also more expensive than hand-weeding. It would however be possible to reduce its cost by applying it as a band spray along the rows and cultivating between the rows with a tractor mounted cultivator.
