Abstract:
In India Chickpea (Cicer arietinum) is one of the most essential pulse crop. It is a key source of protein. It plays an important role in human nutrition for large population in the developing world but its productivity is relatively low. There are lots of reasons for low productivity. Weed is the basic problem in all cereals as well as pulses. Weed control is the basic requirement of crop at below the economic threshold level. Chickpea is poor competitive crop with weeds because slow growth rate and development. It has limited branches and low leaf area weed competition of chickpea up to 60 days after sowing (Singh and Singh, 2000). Chickpea is highly susceptible to weed competition and the weeds causes 75% of yield losses (Chaudhary et. al. 2005). Considering the losses caused due to weeds, it is essential to manage the weeds within their critical crop-weed competition period.
