Department of Agronomy

The discipline is entrusted with the responsibility of developing suitable agrotechnology for rainfed conditions, identifying economic cropping sequences, and combating noxious weeds of the region. Considering the yield and rainfall pattern agronomic practices, including weed management for various rabi and kharif crops have been standardized. Work under two ICAR funded research projects, viz. study on the control of Oxalis sp. in U. P. hills, and integrated approach for optimizing the packages of practices for improving the yield level of uncommon pulses in U. P. hills has been completed and useful technologies evolved. The noxious weed Oxalis latifolia, can be best controlled by pre-emergence application of oxadizon (0.5kg/ha) in all the pulses, maize, rainfed rice, buckwheat and potato, and as pre-transplant application in all the transplanted vegetables and other crops. Similarly, Eupatorium adenophorum and Parthenium hysterophorus could best be controlled through the application of glycophosphate (0.5%).
