Abstract

Effect of various weedicides with different doses was studied for chemical weed control and yield of lentil crop. Stomp 330 EC (Pendimothalim) pre-emergence @ 1.00, 1.25 and 1.50 kg ai ha-1, Treflan-R 48 EC (Trifluralin), pre-emergence incorporated @ 0.25, 0.50 and 0.75 kg ai ha-1 and Fusillade 25 EC (Flauzifop butyl) post-emergence @ 0.125, 0.250 and 0.500 kg ai ha-1 were compared with hand weeding on sandy loam saline-sodic soil. The soil having ECe 4.9 dS m-1, pHs 8.70 and SAR 18.10 (m mol l-1) ½ was selected. The test variety was masoor-85. All the weedicides at different doses significantly controlled the weeds but stomp @ 1.50 kg ai ha-1 pre-emergence application produced higher grain yield (1465.00 kg ha-1) among all other treatments which was followed by stomp @ 1.25 kg ai ha-1 (1405.90 kg ha-1) and hand weeding (1405.42 kg ha-1).
