Cite article:- Yadav1 Anupriya, J.C.Patel, R.S.Mehta2, Meena3 Taramani (2024). GROWTH, YIELDS AND ECONOMICS OF CUMIN (CUMINUM CYMINUM L) PRODUCTION AS AFFECTED BY WEED MANAGEMENT PRACTICES. Agricultural Science Digest. 31(4): 316 - 318. doi: .
An experiment was conducted rabi season of 2008-2009 to find economically viable method of weed control for cumin. Results revealed  that highest yield attributes and yield of cumin was recorded with post emergence application of Oxadiargyl 50 g ha-1 20 DAS + HW, being  statistically at par with  rest of the treatments except weedy check  and post emergence application of  glyphosphate @ 0.5 kg /ha. The seed yield of cumin in weedy check was only 75 kg /ha which was too low compared to weed free ( 605 kg /ha). Thus ,weed cause great loss to  seed yield of cumin. The highest net return (Rs.41081 /ha) and BCR (2.17) was recorded with application of oxadiargyl 50 g /ha at 20 DAS which was higher over rest of the treatments. Thus, it can be inferred that   application of Oxadiargyl 50 g ha-1at 7 DAS or 20 DAS + HW is best method of weed control for realizing higher yield.
