Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out to study the post emergence herbicides efficacy in foxtail millet during kharif, 2020 at Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla. The experimental results revealed that the highest growth characters viz., plant height (cm), number of tillers (No. m-2), drymatter production (kg ha-1), yield attributes viz., number of panicles m-2, panicle length, panicle weight, total grains panicle-1, filled grains panicle-1 and yield of foxtail millet were registered under the treatment T2 (Hand weeding at 15 and 30 DAS). Among the herbicide applied treatments it’s combination with cultural practice followed in the treatment T8 (Interculture at 15 DAS fb ethoxysulfuron @ 18.75 g a.i ha-1 as PoE at 30 DAS) recorded the highest plant height, number of tillers, drymatter accural and grain yield, but did not differ statistically with the treatments T2 (Hand weeding at 15 and 30 DAS), T10 (Interculture at 15 DAS fb hand weeding at 30 DAS), T3 (Interculture at 15 and 30 DAS), T7 (Interculture at 15 DAS fb chlorimuron ethyl (2 g a.i) + metsulfuron methyl (2 g a.i) @ 4 g a.i ha-1 as PoE at 30 DAS) and T9 (Interculture at 15 DAS fb penoxsulam @ 20 g a.i ha-1 as PoE at 30 DAS).
