dc.description.abstractAn experiment has been undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of traditional practices to use common salt for weed management in jhum paddy in mid hills conditions in Eastern Himalayas with the objective to study the effect of salt application on morphological characters, yield attributes, yield and economics of paddy under shifting cultivation areas. Salt @ 120 kg ha-1 with two spay resulted significantly (P<0.05) higher grain yield over control, and also higher weed control efficiency than three hand weeding. The salt and hand weeding have resulted same effect by reducing the chaffy grain. Salt application is found to be the best weed management strategy with Benefit: Cost ratio of 1.79.en_US
