Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 1995 to 1997 to identify the appropriate integrated weed management practice in rainfed sesamum variety Padma for medium black soil in assured rainfall area. The results showed that cultural practices of two hand weedings and hoeings carried out at 20 and 30 days after sowing of sesamum produced significantly higher grain yield (1239 kg/ha) and gave significantly more gross monetary returns (Rs. 26,519/ha) with highest benefit cost ratio of (6.64) and weed control efficiency (85.3%) than rest of the integrated weed management practices and weedy checks
