Effect of Different Herbicide to Control Phalaris Minor as Influenced by Different Date of Sowing
A field experiment was conducted at the farm of Lovely Professional University, Phagwara during rabi season of 2018-19 and 2019-20 to assess the effects of sowing dates and weed management practices on growth of Phalaris minor in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under Punjab agro-climatic conditions.The investigations revealed that early sowing (first week of November) exerted a significant effect to decrease the density and dry matter of Phalaris minor. Among the different weed management treatments, application of (Sulfosulfuron + Metsulfuron Methyl 30g ai/ha) recorded the lowest density and dry weight of weeds. Crop sown on first week of November, 2018-19 and 2019-20 recorded significantly higher grain yield.
