1. The use of water in the production of rice can have a significant influence on the weed spectrum that will be present as well as the programme employed to manage or to eliminate their growth.

2. Weed problems may be expected to be more varied in species and density in dry seeded rice than wet seeded rice, because of differences in seed bed preparation, the presence or absence of

Fertilizer Management to control of weeds

1. Fertilizers and manures should be incorporated into the soil 5 to 10 cm deep to reduce their availability to weed seedlings that germinate at or near the soil surface. In upland or unflooded rice culture, decomposition of animal and green manure crops incorporated into the soil prior to planting rice is not as critical as for rice grown under flooded conditions.

 1. The rice seedbed should be tilled to eliminate as many weeds and also the germinating weed seedlings as possible before rice is planted.  Usually, ploughing twice after initial summer showers, will remove most of the weeds. 

2.  However, land preparation, by mechanical ploughing, if carried-out on dry soils is of little value in reducing annual weed problems bec
