INTEGRATED WEED MANAGEMENT IN CARROT (DAUCUS CAROTA L.)K. CHAITANYA, S. AMARENDER REDDY, A.V.N.LAVANYA AND S. SRINIVASA RAJU
Field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2010-11 at vegetable Research Station, ARI, APHU, Hyderabad to find out the effective integrated treatment for weed control in carrot. The experiment consisting of fourteen treatments and three replications was laid out in randomized block design. The results indicated that the pre-emergence application of metribuzin @ 0.3 kg ha-1 followed by hand weeding at 30 days after sowing recorded the least weed count and dry weight favouring the highest yield of carrot (21.72 t ha-1). An application of pendimethalin c.s, metribuzin and pendimethalin in combination with one hand weeding produced significantly the higher yield of carrot than the application of these herbicides alone.
