Nutrients removal by weeds as influenced by the Integrated Weed Management practices in irrigated kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.)

Author(s):
G Vinothini and P Murali Arthanari
Abstract:
Field experiment was conducted at Millet Breeding Station, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore to evaluate the Integrated Weed Management practices on Kodo millet under irrigated conditions. An experiment was conducted with eight treatments and replicated thrice in Randomized Block Design (RBD). The results showed that pre emergence application of isoproturon 750 g/ha followed by hand weeding at 40 days after sowing (DAS) recorded significantly lower weed density, lower dry weight and higher weed control efficiency. Hand weeding twice on 20 and 40 DAS and pre emergence application of isoproturon 750 g/ha followed by hand weeding on 40 DAS prevented the subsequent accumulation of dry weight of weeds through reduced weed density which led to decreased removal of soil nutrients.
