Conventional weed management programs in Zea mays L. provide close to complete weed control. Field experiment was conducted from September 2011 to January 2012 at Wetland farm of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore to study pre and post plant herbicidal weed management in transplanted rice. The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized block design with three replication and two factors viz. pre-plant herbicide application (with and without glyphosate at 0.75 kg a.i ha-1) and pre emergence/early post emergence herbicide treatments. Among the weed control treatments, at 20 DAT, pre emergence application of pretilachlor at 0.75 kg a.i ha-1 + HW at 40 DAT significantly reduced the weed density and dry matter production.
OMICS Group International Journals are known for their high impact factor and a section of OMICS Group journals are indexed in the world noted science repository sites like Medline, PubMed Central, Obscure and Scopus. OMICS has more than 700+ peer-reviewed journals and organizes more than 3000+ International Scientific Conferences every year. Journal of Biofertilizers & Biopesticides is the journal which competes with the good impact factor journals and it also publishes the articles which fall under the novel applications of biodegradation and biotransformation technology to soil, water, sewage, heavy metals and hydrocarbons.
