Abstract :

Lepidium draba or whitetop is one of most rapidly growing weed throughout the world. It caused major losses in yield of crop plant due to its higher plant population, body size and surviving ability under harsh environmental conditions. The prescribed study was conducted at Center of Excellence in Molecular Biology, University of the Punjab Lahore, Pakistan. The data were recorded from three different locations during the start of February, 2016. Significant differences were recorded among the locations and traits under study. It was found from mean performance and GGEbiplot that locations 1 & 2 served as suitable locations for better growth and development of L. draba. The significant and positive correlation was recorded for inflorescence weight and moisture percentage with different plant growth traits, which indicated that the survival and stability of L. draba is higher under different environmental conditions. It was suggested that the L. draba should be properly controlled to reduce yield losing effects on crop plant yield. However, the use of transgenic crop plants and mutation breeding may be an advantage to control weeds and their harmful effects.
