Royo-Esnal A, Lopez ML. Effect of burial on productivity and extinction of Oxalis latifolia Kunth. Curr Sci (Bangalore) 2007; 92(7): 979-983.
The effect of burial on productivity and extinction of Oxalis latifolia bulbs has been studied. Linear regression formula showed that complete extinction of bulbs
would be possible only at a burial depth of 32 cm. O. latifolia also sacrificed a number of its descendents in order to maintain its mean weight at increasing depth, mainly at depths greater than 28 cm, where a change
in productivity distribution was observed. A comparison of these results with field population weights showed that a combination of agro-ecosystem conditions and deep burial would improve control of the weed.
