Abstract

Aerobic rice is a new way of cultivating rice that requires less water than lowland rice. Direct sown aerobic rice suffers more due to weed menace as the weeds and rice compete for growth factors together. Achieving higher rice grain yields under aerobic conditions requires better weed management practices. Hence, the aerobic rice should be focused primarily on efficient weed management to make aerobic rice cultivation more efficient in terms of returns on farmer investments and use of water resources. The promising herbicides in aerobic rice were pre-emergence pretilachlor at 0.45 kg/ha on 5 DAS + hand weeding at 45 DAS and post emergence mixture of fenoxaprop + ethoxysulfuron at 45-60 g /ha + 10-18 g/ha.
