Abstract: A field experiment with 11 treatment combination was carried out during 2013 at the Agronomy Farm of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru College of Agriculture and Research Institute, Karaiakal, Puducherry to examine the effect of different weed management practice on growth and yield attributes of aerobic rice. Among the different weed management practices, the result indicates that weed free or pretilachlor plus @0.75Kg ha-1 or pendimethalin 1.00 Kg ha-1 found to be best option for both growth and yield of rice. The study also advocated for chemical weed control under the labour scarcity situations. The combination of pre and post emergent herbicides application is recommended.
