S. Krishnaprabu

Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at Experimental Farm, Annamalai University, Annamalainagar during2015 to find out the most effective control measure for weeds in sesame (Sesamumindicun L.) under irrigatedcondition. Result showed that two hand weeding (weed free) recorded lowest weed population and dryweight which was significantly superior over rest of the treatments. Application of quizalofop-ethy l0.05kg/ha + 1 HW proved most effective and also recorded lower population and dry weight of weeds followedby trifluralin 0.75 kg/ha + 1 HW and pendimethalin 0.75 kg/ha + 1 HW. Weed control efficiency and seedyield was higher under quizalofop-ethyl 0.05 kg/ha + 1 hand weeding as compared to other weed controltreatments.
