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. Experiment consisted of ten treatments laid out in randomized block design with three replications. Quality characters viz., protein, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and total sugar content (%) in grain of sweet corn were analyzed. Reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and total sugar content (%) in grain of sweet corn was observed numerically more under weed free check (3.72, 8.67 and 12.38%, respectively) than those in registered in rest of treatments, while it was recorded lowest in weedy check treatment. Among chemical weed management treatments, application of pendimethalin 1.00 kg a.i. ha-1 (PE) fb tembotrione 120 g a.i. ha-1 (30 DAS) was found better than other herbicidal treatment in respect of reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and total sugar content (%) (3.67, 8.62 and 12.29%, respectively) in grain of sweet corn.
