Effect of ready mix herbicides for weed control in Soybean under Vindhyan Plateau of Madhya Pradesh.

Abstract

Soybean is one of the most important oil-yielding rainy-season kharif crop of Madhya Pradesh having multiple uses. Being a kharifseason crop, soybean is heavily infested by different weed flora, which is responsible for poor yield in soybean crop. The control of weeds during critical period is very important to reduce the yield loss. Keeping this in view, the present experiment was conducted on farmer's field during kharif season of 2014, 2015and 2016 in villages Chainpura, Mainpani, Baroda and Paatan of district Sagar, Madhya Pradesh. Under this experiment, ready mix application of three weed control treatment executed viz.T-1 farmers practices, T2-spray of Fenoxaprop-p-ethyl 1000 ml+ Chlorimuron ethyl 37gm/ha at 20-25 days after sowing as post 2 emergence and T3-spray of Imazethapyr + Imazamox @ 1000 ml/ha at 20-25 days after sowing as post emergence were used at ten 3 farmers fieldduring three crop seasons for control of broad and narrow leaved weeds. The highest weed control efficiency and the lowest weed biomass were recorded with the ready-mix application of Imazethapyr + Imazamox followed by Fenoxprop-p-ethyl + Chlorimuron ethyl for effectively control the grassy and non-grassy weeds in soybean crop.
