Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the summer seasons of 2018 at Agricultural Farm, Institute of Agriculture, Visva-Bharati, Sriniketan, West Bengal to study the effect of pre-emergance herbicide on growth, yield attributes and yield of summer groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.). The experiment comprising of eight treatments was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. Application of Flumioxazin 50% SL 150 g a.i ha-1 at 1 DAS resulted significantly higher plant height (95.33 cm), leaf area index at 60 DAS (1.8), no. of branches/plant at 60 DAS (17.33), dry matter accumulation at harvest (611.60 g m-2), no. of mature pods/plant (17.82), pod yield (3199.33 kg ha-1), haulm yield (3155.73 kg ha-1), harvest index (50.37 %), shelling percentage (71%) and minimum no. of immature pods/plant (1.27) over untreated control but was at par with Flumioxazin 50% SL 125 g a.i ha-1 at 1 DAS and weed free check.
