Abstract

Development of efficient farm machinery and availability of effective herbicides have resulted the higher profitability in conservation agriculture (CA) that in turn has been identified as an effective tool for sustainability of agriculture (Farooq et al., 2011). But weed species shifts and losses in crop yield caused from increased weed density have been cited as major hurdles of CA adoption (Dahal and Karki, 2014). Crop yields in CA can be similar to conventional systems if weeds are controlled (Chauhan et al., 2012). The availability of pre-plant, pre-emergence and post-emergence herbicides provides an opportunity to control weeds in CA. But weed control strategies adopted must reduce the development of herbicide resistance by weeds. The presence of crop residues on the soil surface may reduce weed infestation by affecting weed seed germination and emergence patterns. Considering the above facts, this on-farm experiment was conducted to examine the performance of strip tillage, residue mulching and weeding regimes on crop yield and weeds.
