Interculture and weed control
Two hoeings and weedings be given in the early stages on growth in order to control the weeds. Basalin @ 2 L/ha should be sprayed in 750-800 L water as pre-emergence. To avoid photodecomposition of Bavistin, it must be incorporated in upper soil layer of 3-4 cm or the spray should be done in the evening.
The weeds can also be effectively controlled by the pre-emergence application of Goal @ L/ha or Saturn @ 3 L/ha or Stomp @ 4.5 L/ha or post - or - pre-emergence application of Blazer @ 1 L/ha.
