HERBICIDAL CONTROL OF PHAFARIS MINOR (GUILI-DANDA) IN WHEAT (TRITICURN AESTIVUM L.)

Sanjeev Kumar and Abha Agarwal

Abstract

Field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2005-2006 to evaluate the performance of fenoxaprop-p-ethyl (90g a.i./ha), metribuzin (70g a.i./ha) and metsulfuron methyl (4.0g a.i./ha) herbicides applied at 35 days to control Pholaris minor in wheat field. All the herbicidal treatments provided excellent control of Plialuris minor and significantly improved grain yield over control (unweeded) treatment. Fenoxaprop-p-ethyl at 90g a.i./ha was found most effective in controlling Maoris minor and recorded highest grain yield of wheat compared to control (unweeded) treatment.
