Abstract: Field experiment on weed management in jute was conducted for two years (2001 and 2002) at the Instructional Farm of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya (22.93Â°N. 88.53Â°E) having sandy loam, neutral, medium fertile soil to study the economics involved with different weed management methods in jute. The maximum fibre yield of capsularis and otitorius jute was 2917 and of 4010 kg/ha respectively with two hand weeding (21 and 35 DAS) which was at par with the ibre yield (2817 and 3636 kg/ ha) from Fluchloralin + one hand weeding at 35 DAS for capsularis and otitorius jute. The highest net return per rupee investment (NRPRI) in capsularis jute was 1.64 in Fluchloralin+one hand weeding (35 DAS) treatment which was closely followed by the NRPRI (1 .61) with one hand weeding (21 DAS) treatment. In olitorius jute it was 2.70 with Fluchloratin + one hand weeding (35 DAS) treatment which was closely followed by the NRPRI (2.69) with one hand weeding (21 DAS) treatment. The lowest NRPRI of otitorius jute was 1.82 only with noweeding treatment. The same data for capsularis jute was 1.30 with unweeded control treatment and with one hand weeding (35 DAS) treatment.
