Abstract:

The front line demonstration on integrated weed management in soybean was conducted on farmers filed of Damoh district (MP) during kharif season of 2016-17 and 2017-18 at two different locations under rainfed conditions. Prevailing farmer practices were treated as control for comparison with recommended practice i.e. use of Integrated weed management practices such as preventive measure, cultural, mechanical and chemical methods i.e. application of Imazethapyr 35%+Imazamox 35% WG@ 70 g ai/ha at 15-20 days after sowing (DAS). The result of front line demonstration shows a greater impact on farming community due to significant increase in crop yield greater than farmers practice. The economics and benefit cost ratio of both farmers practice (FP) and recommended Practice (RP) were worked out. The weed intensity and weed biomass were found lower (51.5/M2 and 45.7g/m2) than FP (275/m2 and 251g/m2). An average of Rs. 26400/ha was recorded net profit under RP, while it was Rs. 14300/ha under FP. Benefit cost Ratio was 2.49 under RP, while it was 1.73 under FP. By introducing the proven technology i.e. integrated weed management, yield potential and net income from soybean in rainfed conditions can be enhanced to a great extent with increase in the income level of the farming community of the District.
