Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during rabi 2010-11 to study the influence of integrated weed management on β-carotene content and Vit-C content of carrot. The results indicated that the influence of integrated weed management on these quality parameters was found to be non-significant. However, maximum  β-carotene  content (8291.205 µg) and Vit-C content (6.30mg per 100 gms) were recorded with treatment Metribuzin 0.3 kg a.i ha-1   (PE) + Hand Weeding 30 DAS and the minimum were recorded in unweeded control. Application of different pre-emergence herbicides and their combinations with post emergence herbicides and hand weeding had exerted a significant influence on yield of carrot. Pre-emergence application of Metribuzin 0.3 kg a.i ha-1   (PE) followed by hand Weeding at 30 Days after sowing was effective and significantly superior over the rest of treatments by recording the highest yield of carrot  (21.72 t/ha).
