Effect of weed control practices on weeds and yield of black gram (Vigna mungo)
Citation :- Effect of weed control practices on weeds and yield of black gram(Vigna mungo) .Legume Research-An International Journal.2015.(38):855-857
Field investigation was carried out during kharif season of 2012 the results showed that unchecked weeds caused a reduction of 66.67% in black gram yield. Two hand weeding at 25 and 50 DAS recorded maximum number of pods /plant, number of seeds /pod, 1000 seeds weight ,seed yield and higher weed control efficiency followed by Imazathapyr+Imazamox (premix) @ 50 g/ha PoE at 20 DAS. Imazathapyr+Imazamox (premix) @ 50 g/ha at PoE 20 DAS registered highest net return and B:C ratio followed by Imazathapyr +Pendimethalin (premix) @ 1000 g/ha PE.
