Abstract

A study was carried out to check the outcome of different weed management techniques on the growth and yield of Pea cv. Meteor at Vegetable Research Area, Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, Dera Ismail Khan, during 2012-13. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with six treatments including control (weedy check), Stomp (pendimethalin) @ 2.5 L ha-1, Dual gold (S-metolachlor) @ 2.5 L ha-1, threehand weeding (20, 40 and 60 DAS), transparent plastic mulch and black plastic mulch. Each treatment was replicated three times. Data on days to germination and flowering, weed density, fresh and dry weed biomass, plant height, pods plant-1, pod length, seeds pod-1andseed yield ha-1were recorded and analyzed statistically. Weed density, fresh and dry biomass of weed were significantly reduced by different weed management techniques. Whereas, all plant growth, yield and yield contributing traits were considerably improved due to weed management. Significant variations existed among different weed management strategies regarding all parameters. The maximum pod yield (5.11 t ha-1) was recorded from hand weeded plots, followed by black plastic (4.84) and Dual gold (4.10 t ha-1). Stomp (2.61 t ha-1) and clear plastic (2.55 t ha-1) were statistically at par with respect to pod yields. It was concluded from the results that highest yield of pea and effective weed control were achieved by three hand weeding followed by black plastic mulch. However, maximum value of BCR (2.33) was obtained in Dual gold followed by hand weeding (2.24), suggesting that for large scale pea production, application of Dual gold @ 2.5 L ha-1 was economical.
