Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2007 and 2008 at Udaipur to study the effect of three tillage practices (conventional, zero and rotavator) and seven weed control treatments (weedy check, pendimethalin, imazethapyr, quizalofop-ethyl, chlorimuron-ethyl, in-situ mulching and two hand weedings. The trial, therefore, assessed the bio-efficacy of herbicides in soybean under different tillage practices. Results revealed that rotavator tillage recorded minimum total weed density and total weed dry matters. Two hand weeding and imazethapyr recorded minimum total weed density and total weed dry weight. Conventional tillage recorded highest yield attributes, grain yield,oil and protein yield, as compare to rotavator and zero tillage. Two hand weedings recorded highest yield attributes, grain yield, oil and protein yield, however the B:C ratio was observed maximum in rotavator and Imazethpyr.
