In trials in Haryana, fluchloralin (0.75, 1 or 1.25 kg/ha) oxadiazon (0.75, 1 or 1.25 kg) or pendimethalin (1, 2 or 3 kg) was applied pre-em., or hand-weeding was carried out once or twice, for control of weeds (Trianthema monogyna [T. portulacastrum], Cyperus rotundus, Sporobolus diander and Chenopodium album) infesting aubergines cv. BR-112. None of the herbicides was phytotoxic to the crop. All treatments significantly reduced weed DM and increased the fruit yield in comparison with no treatment, and fluchloralin or oxadiazon at 1.25 kg or pendimethalin at 3 kg/ha gave yields that were better than those for two hand weedings and on a par with those for weed-free controls.
