Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to find out the impact of weeding regime on the performance of three Aus rice. The experimental treatment consisted of three varieties of rice viz. BRRI dhan28, Bere Ratna and Kajol Lata, and four weeding regimes viz. no weeding, one hand weeding at 35 days after sowing (DAS), two hand weedings at 20 and 35 DAS and three hand weedings at 20, 35 and 50 DAS. The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized complete block design with three replications. Eleven weed species belonging to five families infested the experimental plots; Cyperus rotundus L. and Imperata cylindrica (L.) Baeuv. were the dominant. The effect of weeding regime on weed density (except at 20 DAS) and weed dry weight was statistically significant. The results indicated that three hand weedings at 20, 35 and 50 DAS produced the highest number of effective tillers hill-1, number of filled grains panicle-1, 1000-grain weight and grain yield. Among the varieties Bere Ratna gave the highest grain yield.
