Integrated Weed Management in Groundnut and Soybean

1) Follow the preventive measures for minimizing introduction and further spreading weeds.

2) Use good quality seeds and carryout sowing at optimum time, at proper moisture level in the soil by using optimum seed rate, spacing and plant protection measures for maintaining optimum plant population of the crop.

3) Chemical and mechanical methods: Fluchloralin ( Basalin) @0.5 to 1 kg a.i /ha as pre plant soil incorporation (PPI). There should be sufficient soil moisture in the soil at the time of application for minimizing loss of Fluchloralin due to volatization.

Alachlor ( Lasso) @ 1.5 to 2 kg ai/ha as pre emergence spray immediately after sowing.

Pendamethline @ 1 kg ai/ha as preemergence spray immediately after sowing.

Chemical methods supplemented with one  weeding if required and hoeing after about 30 to days after sowing depending upon weed intensity is effective for control of weeds.
