Abstract:

Cuscuta campestris is complete stem parasite and serious problem of lentil. It causes 87% yield loss. Manual removal of Cuscuta is labour intensive and cause high labour cost. Herbicides are the best option for the management of Cuscuta. In present study, impact of Pendimethalin, Quizalfop and Imazethapyr were observed on weed count of Cuscuta and yield attribute of Lentil. In both the year i.e. 2014-15 and 2015-16, Pendimethalin cause maximum reduction in weed count of Cuscuta, highest number of pod per plant and yield of lentil compared to Quizalfop ethyl and Imazethapyr. In the year 2014-15, weed count of Cuscuta was 18, 82 and 88 in Pendimethalin, Imazethapyr and Quizalfop ethyl treatment respectively. Average number of pod was 64, 57 and 54 while Yield was 13.7, 11.2 and 11.1 in Pendimethalin, Imazethapyr and Quizalfop ethyl treatment respectively. Similar trend was observed in the year 2015-16. Hence, Pendimethalin was found to be more effective as compared to Imazethapyr and Quizalfop ethyl for the management of Cuscuta.
