Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during 2005-06 to 2006-07 at Varanasi to find out the effect of three residue management practices viz. R1 (Residue Removal), R2 (Residue Retention alone), R3 (Residue Retention with Trichoderma) and four weed management treatments viz. W1 (Control), W2 (Hand weeding at 30 & 45 DAS), W3 (Isoproturon +2,4-D (1.0+0.5 ha-1 at 30 DAS), W4 (Fenoxaprop 120 g a.i. ha-1 fb Metsulfuron 4g a.i. ha-1 ) on weeds and productivity of zero-till wheat (Triticum aestivum L. emend Fiori & Poal) in rice-wheat cropping system during the winter (rabi) season. Wheat grown under rice wheat cropping system with residue retention with Trichoderma application produced 8.2 and 6.8 % higher grain and 7.3 and 6.2 % straw yield over residue removal treatment during both the year of experimentations. Out of all residue management approaches under test, residue management alone along with isoproturon + 2, 4-D application for weed control gave higher net returns during the course of above study.
