The present work has evaluated the possible use of the exogenous application, of different concentrations of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in relation to its efficacy with respect to the control of the aquatic weed of rice fields Lemna minor L.
The application of H2O2 at a concentration of 4.5% by volume has achieved a reduction of more than 70% in the green surface of the vegetation cover, reaching a reduction in mass of 40%; all this without significantly altering the pH of the water.
