A field experiment with 11 weed management practices including herbicide and hand weedings was conducted at Jagdalpur during 2006 and 2007. Digitaria sangunalis, Eleusine indica and Echinochloa colona among monocots, and Celosia argentia and Spilanthes acmella among dicots were the major weeds. Dry weight of weeds and weed control efficiency were the lowest under weed-free condition throughout crop growth period fb weed-free up to 40 and 50 DAS, and hand weedings at 20 and 40 DAS. These treatments also led to higher yield attributes and yields of finger millet. The highest B:C ratio (3.79) was obtained when isoproturon 0.5 kg/ha was applied as pre-emergence followed by its lower dose (0.05 kg/ha).
