Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the effect of integrated weed management practices on weeds as well as crop growth and yield parameters in brinjal cv. BH-6747 during 2012-13 at vegetable research farm, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. The field experiment comprised of various chemicals (weedicides) and mulch. All the weed management treatments significantly reduced the dry weight and count of weeds. Among various treatments, black polyethylene mulch was excellent in controlling weed population and it was followed by pre-emergence application of oxyflourofen @ 0.15 kg/ha along with hand weeding 45 days after transplanting(DAT) with respect to dry weight of weeds, plant height, number of branches, average fruit weight, fruits per plant, fruit length and girth and total yield. Maximum cost benefit ratio was obtained with oxyflurofen @ 0.15 kg/ha along with hand weeding.


Keywords: Brinjal, Mulch, Herbicide, Integrated weed management, Pendimethalin, Oxyflourfen and cost benefit ratio.
