REVIEW ON: EFFECT OF INTEGRATED WEED MANAGEMENT PRACTICE ON BREAD WHEAT (Triticum aestivum L.)

Weed infestation is one of the major biotic constraints in wheat production. Wheat is infested with
diverse type of weed flora, as it is grown under diverse agro climatic conditions, different cropping sequence, and
tillage and irrigation regimes. For controlling weeds in wheat, growers mostly rely on herbicides due to cost and time
effectiveness. For control of diverse weed flora in wheat combination of herbicides or as sequential, if not compatible
are required. However, sole dependence on herbicides is also not desirable as it contributes to shift towards difficultto-control weeds and the rapid evolution of herbicide resistance, which is a threat for sustainable wheat production.
For efficient weed management, the non-chemical weed management tactics should be adopted in conjunction with
chemicals (like herbicide mixture and rotation, optimum spray time, dose and methods). Some of the non-chemical
agronomic strategies like tillage, sowing time, sowing methods, competitive crop cultivars, higher crop density, closer
spacing, irrigation, fertilization and crop rotation can be adjusted and adopted in such a manner that they provide
the competitive edge to the crop over weeds. Integration of knowledge of weed biology and non-chemical methods of
weed control with chemical methods will help in increasing the life of existing herbicides and make the weed
management cost-effective and efficient.
