Abstract: A field experiment entitled "Evaluation of pre and post emergence herbicides in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)" was carried out during rabi season of 2016 at the Instructional Farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, JAU, Junagadh. The experiment comprising 12 treatments was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that next to the weed free treatment, significantly higher values of growth parameters viz., plant height, number of branches/plant and leaf SPAD value, yield attributes and yield viz. number of pods/plant along with seed yield and stover yield were recorded with application of Oxyfluorfen 0.18 kg ha-1 as pre-emergence fb Pre-mix (Imazamox + Imazethapyr) 0.03 kg ha-1 post-emergence at 40 DAS and Two HW at 20 and 40 DAS. Besides, weed free condition, Oxyfluorfen 0.18 kg ha-1 as pre-emergence fb Pre-mix (Imazamox + Imazethapyr) 0.03 kg ha-1 post-emergence at 40 DAS and Two HW at 20 and 40 DAS were found more effective in reducing the weed population up to harvest and resulted in less dry weight of weeds, lower weed index and higher weed control efficiency and herbicidal efficiency index. The highest net return of Rs. 72040 ha-1 was realized with Oxyfluorfen 0.18 kg ha-1 as PE fb Pre-mix (Imazamox + Imazethapyr) 0.03 kg ha-1 PoE at 40 DAS followed by the treatments Weed free and Two HW at 20 and 40 DAS. However, the highest BCR of 3.54 was obtained with the treatment Oxyfluorfen 0.18 kg ha-1 as PE fb Pre-mix (Imazamox + Imazethapyr) 0.03 kg ha-1 PoE at 40 DAS.
