Rice (Orusa sativa) in Macedonia is cultivated at around 4 000 ha with a yield of approximately 6 000kg/ha. It is mainly produced in the region of Kocani, and the most cultivated varieties are San Andrea and Monticeli from Italy type Japonica.
Many weed species exist in the fields of rice which decrease the yield and the quality of rice. Most spread species are from the family Cypreaceae (Scirpus maritimus, Scirpus mucronatus, Cyperus difformis and Cyperus rotundus), Echinochloa crus-gali from family Poaceae and Heteranthera limosa from the family Pontederiaceae. Less common weed species are Potamogeton natans, Butomus umbellatus, Potamogeton distinctus (Karov I., et al., 2001) and Leersia oryzoides. Other present weed species belong to Ammania sp., Rotala sp. and Lemna sp.
