Abstract:
A field test was conducted during the summer season of 2020-2021 on medium black soil at Agriculture Technical School, Aurangabad (MH), to evaluate the effect of weed management in summer pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.). Nine weed control strategies were used in the experiment pre and post emergence herbicides (Atrazine, 2,4-D, Halosulfuron methyl, Chlorimuron ethyl and Metsulfuron methyl) in randomized block design with three replications. The maximum grain yield was recorded with weed free plot (T2), which was at par with tank mix of Atrazine 50% WP @ 500 g a.i./ha + 2,4-D Dimethyl amine salt 58% SL @ 500 g a.i./ha (T8). The better performance of (T8) might be attributed to significantly lower weed dry weight, lower weed index and higher weed control efficiency which reflected in higher values of plant height, number of effective tillers/plant, earhead length, earhead girth and 1000 grain weight. Maximum net returns (Rs. 77715) and B:C ratio (3.09) were observed in tank mix of Atrazine 50% WP @ 500 g a.i./ha + 2,4-D Dimethyl amine salt 58% SL @ 500 g a.i./ha (T8) as compared to weed free plot.
