Abstract:
It was observed that the plant population was almost under all the different weed control practices at both the stages. The maximum plant height at harvest stage was also recorded in T8 (2 H.W. at 30 and 60 DAS), Maximum number of branches at harvest stage were noted under T8 (7.92/plant), which was at par with T5 (7.47/plant) treatment. At harvest, the maximum number of leaves per plant was recorded under the treatment weed free (8.20/plant) which was statistically at par with T5 (grass mulch 5 t/ha one week after germination). The maximum dry weight per plant was recorded under the treatment weed free (22.02/plant) which was statistically superior over all the weed control treatments. Among all the weed management treatments, weed free T8 (2 H.W. at 30 and 60 DAS) recorded significantly higher number of pod per plant. The maximum length of pod (12.20 cm) was recorded in T8 treatment, which was statistically at par with T¬5 and T4 and former treatment recorded significantly longer pod than rest of the treatments. The maximum girth of pod (1.37 cm), yield (1102kg/ha) and maximum harvest index (15.39%) was observed under T8 (2 HW at 30 & 60 DAS).
