Abstract: The current investigation was carried out to study the efficacy of different pre and post emergence of herbicides and their combinations along with weeding and hoeing operation to control the weed in wheat at post graduate research farm, R.C.S.M. College of Agriculture, Kolhapur (MS) in randomized block design with eights treatments and three replication during Rabi season of 2016-17 on medium black soil. All the growth attributing characters of wheat crop viz., plant height, number of leaves plant-1, leaf area plant-1, dry matter accumulation plant-1 and number of tillers m-2 also yield attributes viz. length of spike, number of spikelets spike-1, number of grains spike-1, grain weightspike-1 and weight of 1000 grains and yield of grain (52.78 q ha-1)and straw yield (68.45 q ha-1) were recorded higher in weed free check. Among the integrated weed management treatments, the significantly highest all growth attributing characters, yield attributes characters and yield were recorded with weeding at 20 DAS and + metasulfuron methyl @ 4 g a.i. ha-1 as PoE at 30 DAS which was statistically at par with hoeing at 20 DAS + metasulfuron methyl @ 4 g a.i. ha-1 as PoE at 30 DAS. Significantly the lowest growth and yield was recorded under weedy check (30.70 q ha-1).
