A field experiment conducted during the ~harif season of 1999 showed that hand weeding twice.at 20 and 40 DAT resulted the lowest weed dry matter of 2.87, 5.85 and 10.91 g/m 2 at 30, 60 and 90 DAT respectively which were at par with t_he treatment Anilofos + Ethoxy sulfuron at 390 g a.i./ha (Ready-mix). The highest WCE (92.55~) was obtained at 90 DAT with hand weeding treatment which was closely followed by the treatment Anilofos + Ethoxy sulfuron at 390 g a.i./ha. Number of effective tillers/m

The highest rice grain yield (4.48 Uha) was obtained with the hand weeding twice treatment which however, was at par with ready-mix herbicide mixture Anilpfos + Ethoxy sulfuron at 390 g a.i./ha yielding 4.42 Uha. Among all the herbicides tested, the ready-mix herbicide mixture Anilofos + Ethoxy sulfuron at 390 g a.i./ha applied 10 DAT proved to be the best for controlling all categories of weeds resulting the highest gr~in yield of rice.
