Impact of integrated package of agrotechniques on growth and yield of aerobic rice
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Kharif, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 at GKVK, Bengaluru, Karnataka to study the effect of integrated package of agrotechniques on growth and yield of aerobic rice. The predominant weed flora observed in the experimental field were, Eleusine indica, Digitaria marginata L., Dactyloctenium aegyptium L., Alternanthera sessilis, Mollugo distica L., Celosia argentia and Borreria hispida. Treatments receiving integrated weed management practices recorded significantly lower weed population and weed dry weight as compared to pre-emergence application of pyrazosulfuron ethyl alone. Application of RDF + FYM + Biofertilizers + FeSO4 +IWM practices (T8) recorded significantly higher growth, yield parameters and yield as compared to RDF + FYM + IWM practices and was being on par with RDF + FYM + Biofertilizers + IWM practices (T5).
