A Field experiments were carried out from 2009-10 and 2010-11 to evaluate the efficiency of herbicides under different rice residue management practices in wheat. The herbicide treatments included application of sulfosulfuron alone and tank mix Sulfosulfuron 25 g/ha + metsulfuron 4 g/ha and isoproturon 1.0 kg/ha + metsulfuron 4 g/ha. Residue mulching reduced weed density, resulting in improvement of growth and yield attributing characters of wheat followed by residue incorporated and residue retained treatments. Among the different herbicide application, Sulfosulfuron 25 g/ha + metsulfuron 4 g/ha was recorded higher, growth, yield attributes and wheat yield; and harvest index followed by isoproturon 1.0 kg/ha + metsulfuron 4 g/ha and sulfosulfuron 25 g/ha. It was concluded that rice residue mulching management was best among the given residue management practices and tank mix application of Sulfosulfuron 25 g/ha + metsulfuron 4 g/ha was best among other treatments in terms of increased wheat yield.
