Abstract:
An experiment entitled “Effect of pre and post emergence herbicides on growth, yield and quality of Sweet corn (Zea mays saccharata)” was conducted during kharif 2019 at Post Graduate Research Farm, Agronomy Section, College of Agriculture, Dhule. Among the chemical weed management treatments, application of pendimethalin 1000 g a.i ha-1 (PE) fb tembotrione 120 g a.i ha-1 (30 DAS) recorded significantly higher all growth parameters and it was par with pendimethalin 1000 g a.i ha-1 (PE) fb 2,4- D dimethyl amine 1000 g a.i ha-1 (PoE). The significant effect on growth character of plant was noticed due to different treatments which resulted in enhance yield contributing character viz., number of cob plant-1, length of cob with husk (cm), weight of cob with husk (g), diameter of cob with husk (cm), weight of grain cob-1 (g) and number of grains cob-1. Among herbicidal treatments, green cob and fodder yield was observed better with application of pendimethalin 1000 g a.i ha-1 (PE) fb tembotrione 120 g a.i ha-1 (30 DAS) (147.94 and 306.97 q ha-1, respectively) and it was found at par with application of pendimethalin 1.00 kg a.i ha-1 (PE) fb 2,4-D dimethyl amine 1.00 kg a.i ha-1 (PoE) (140.49 and 294.63 q ha-1, respectively).
