Abstract:

Weed management in crops through hand weeding is facing a tough challenge in many developing countries like India where workers are migrating from rural to urban areas in search of better job and lifestyle opportunities. Manual weeding option is facing acute shortage of labour. The present investigation was therefore carried out to study the effect of different levels of nitrogen and weed management practices on weed parameters of gaillardia (Gaillardia pulchella Foug.) under Hyderabad conditions and it was carried out during the year 2018-2019 at Floricultural Research Station, Hyderabad. The experiment was laid out in FRBD comprising of 20 treatment combinations with three replications. Minimum weed count per square meter (15.59 and 2.16), dry weight of weeds (2.34 g and 0.71 g) was observed in 180 kg N/ha and mulching with black and silver polythene mulch. Weed control efficiency was maximum (62.70 % and 94.944%) in treatment 180 kg N/ha and mulching with black and silver polythene mulch.
