Chemical weed control


1. Among all methods, chemical control is effective and herbicides being cheap, reliable, have facilitated a revolution in crop agronomy. Currently, herbicides share about two-third by volume of the pesticides used in agricultural production. 

2. Globally herbicides constitute about 50-70% of total pesticides sale in USA and European countries like Germany, France and Austria.


Mechanical weeders for weed control


1. The  use of hand operated or power operated weeders is feasible only where rice is planted in straight rows. 

 2. Hand weeders such as rotary and cono weeders are not effective if land is too dry or in standing water. 

3. The pushed weeders are in common use. The weeder should be run in both the directions, at right angles to each other.
