Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season of 2013-14 and 2014-15 at farmer’s field of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Jehanabad, Bihar to evaluate the effect of weed management practices on productivity and profitability of wheat. The treatments were comprised of four weed management practices i.e. control or farmer practices, sulfosulfuron 25 g a.i./ha, metsulfuron-methyl 4 g a.i./ha and premix of sulfosulfuron and metsulfuron methyl (30+2) g a.i./ha, laid out in randomized block design and replicated five times. Results revealed that application of sulfosulfuron and metsulfuron-methyl (30+2) g a.i. /ha produced significantly higher grain yield (3868 kg/ha) but being on a with sulfosulfuron 25 g a.i. /ha (3818 q/ha). The lowest grain yield was recorded with the farmers practices (2576 kg/ha). Further, markedly higher weed dry weight (138 g/m2) was recorded with control and lowest with application of premix formulation of sulfosulfuron and metsulfuron methyl (40 g/m2). Hence, it may be concluded that application of premix sulfosulfuron and metsulfuron methyl (40 g/m2) is beneficial in achieving the higher productivity and profitability of wheat for the farming community of Eastern India.
