Abstract:
In order to investigate the effect of different herbicidal treatments on finger millet crop, a field experiment was carried out in randomized block design with three replication during 2015 at IGKV, Rajmohini Devi College of Agricultural and Research Station, Ambikapur (C.G). Weeds, viz. Panicum maxima, Elusine indica, Cyperus spp., Cynodon dactylon, Celosia argentea, Alternanthera sessilis, Alternanthera triandra and Ageratum conyzoides were the dominant weeds of the experimental field. Results revealed that number of tillers, LAI, dry matter accumulation, crop growth rate per plant, weed control efficiency, herbicide use efficiency and grain yield were significantly higher under hoeing twice by wheel hoe between rows and intra-row manual weeding at 20 and 40 and hand weeding twice at 20 and 40 DAS.
