Effect of Pre-emergence Orifan on Lens culinaris Medic. Under Varying Levels of Phosphorus

Shazia Fazal, Muhammad Sadiq, Muzammil Saleem and Azeem Khalid    

Abstract: In a field trial conducted at University of Agriculture, Faisalabad during 1996-97, two varieties of lentil (Lens culinaris Medic) viz. Masoor 93 and 91517 were treated with pre-emergence Orifan coupled with three phosphorus levels. Herbicidal treatment reduced weed population and weed biomass as compared to control. Both the inputs increased various parameters including yield components. Phosphorus @ 60 kg ha -1 and Orifan @ 3.0 l ha-1 proved better than their lower rates and brought about an overall increase of 58 per cent over control, attributable to the two inputs in about 1:4 ratio, respectively. The two varieties showed non significant difference for various parameters.
