Abstract:

A field experiment on evaluation of herbicides for control of weeds in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was conducted at School of Agriculture, ITM University, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh during the winter season of 2015-16. The experiment comprised of ten post emergence herbicides application along with weed free and weedy check treatments. Maximum weed control efficiency was observed in weed free treatment followed by Sulfosulfuron + Metsulfuron, Isoproturon and Sulfosulfuron treatments. Sulfosulfuron + Metsulfuron recorded lowest weed index. The maximum grain yield was observed in weed free which was statistically at par with that observed with application of Sulfosulfuron + Metsulfuron, Isoproturon, and Sulfosulfuron. Highest straw yield was recorded in Sulfosulfuron which was statistically at par with weed free, Sulfosulfuron+ Metsulfuron, Mesosulfuron + Iodosulfuron, Isoproturon, Pinoxaden + Metsulfuron and Pinoxaden + 2,4-D-E applied treatments. The lower grain and straw yield was recorded under weedy check which was significantly inferior to rest of the treatments. The harvest index was in the range of 40.80 to 47.02 % under different weed control treatments. The results indicate that application of Sulfosulfuron + metsulfuron (30+2 g ha-1) or isoproturon (1000 g ha-1) are most remunerative and effective herbicides for weed management in irrigated wheat under sandy loam soils of Northern Madhya Pradesh.
