GROWTH, YIELD AND ECONOMICS OF FINGER MILLET INFLUENCED BY POST EMERGENCE HERBICIDESSrishti Pandey, H.l. Sonboir and Amit Kumar Patel and Damini Thawait
The experiment comprising 13 weed management practices which comprised single application of different post-emergence herbicides either alone or in combination and hand weeding was conducted on Clayey Vertisols soil of College of Agriculture, Raipur during kharif season of 2012. Echinochloa colona among grasses, Cyperusiria among sedges and Alternanthera triandra, Eclipta alba and Phyllanthus urinaria among broad leaf weeds were dominant. Hand weeding twice recorded the highest grain yield and net return. This higher yield in Hand weeding twice was reflected in terms of better yield parameter like Number of fingers m-2, finger length, number of fingerlet finger-1, grains finger-1 and test weight and growth parameter like plant height, dry matter accumulation and Number of tillers. Application of ethoxysulfuron registered the highest B:C ratio which was at par with metsulfuron methyl + chlorimuron ethyl and hand weeding twice.
