Effect of herbicides on growth, weed control efficiency and seed cotton yield of HDPS cotton.

Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during the rainy season of 2014-2015 on Vertisol, to study the effect of different pre and post emergence weedicides on high density planting system (HDPS) cotton among the tested weedicides, the highest seed cotton yield (1741 kg /ha) was recorded with weed free check followed by pendimethalin 38.7 EC PE @ 1.25 kg a.i./ha fb hoeing at 30 DAS and one hand weeding at 45 DAS. The highest weed-control efficiency (96.08) was recorded with weed free check followed by pendimethalin 38.7 EC PE @ 1.25 kg a.i./ha fb hoeing at 30 DAS and one hand weeding at 45 DAS. The SCY was maximum due to more number of plants of AKH 081/unit area. The plant population was 1.55 lakh /ha sown on broad bed furrow system.
