A field experiment was conducted at Zonal Research Station, Darisai, East Singhbhum, Jharkhand during rabi season of 2005-06 to 2007-08 to find out the performance of different weeding tools along with weedicides for increasing the productivity of wheat. The experiments were laid out in Randomized Block Design with six treatments viz; khurpi, dutch hoe, grubber, dry land weeder, weedicide and control. The results revealed that Grubber gave maximum grain yield (27.32 q ha-1) followed by khurpi (26.20 q/ha). The highest weeding control efficiency (93.10 %) was also recorded in grubber followed by khurpi (96.8 %) and lowest (83.43%) was with weedicide. The plant damage was highest under dutch hoe (2.01%) followed by dryland weeder (1.61%) and lowest (0.64%) with khurpi. The highest benefit cost ratio (1.25) was obtained when weeding was done with grubber.
