Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Agricultural Research Station, Banswara (Rajasthan) to evaluate the effective weed management strategy for enhancing productivity and profitability of chickpea. The experiment consisted of eleven treatments of PE (pendimethalin 30EC, pendimethalin 38.7CS, sulfentrazone 39.6 SC, imazethapyr 2%) and POE (fenoxaprop ethyl 9.3 EC) herbicides with weed free and weedy check was laid out in random block design with three replications. Results revealed that the sequential weed management practices of pendimethalin 38.7CS@1.0kg a.i. ha-1 used as pre-emergence followed by one hand weeding at 30-35 DAS has resulted the lower weed dry weight (12.13g m-2) with higher weed control efficiency (81.86%) than other herbicidal treatments, which ultimately increased seed yield (1968kg ha-1), net return (Rs 52600 ha-1) and B: C ratio (2.01). The highest seed yield (2000kg ha-1) and weed control efficiency (95.87%) recorded in weedy free with two hand weeding at 30-35 and 60-65DAS. It can be concluded that pre-emergence application of pendimethalin 38.7CS@1.0kg a.i. ha-1 + one hand weeding at 30-35 DAS proved to include as effective and economical weed management practice in chickpea under rain-fed condition of southern Rajasthan.
