Weed Management in Chilli/Hotpepper Crop

Weedicides are chemicals used to control or kill weeds in crops. Here are some common weedicides that can be used for chilli crop:

  1. Pendimethalin: Pendimethalin is a selective pre-emergence herbicide that can be used to control weeds in chilli crop. It should be applied before planting the chilli seedlings.

  2. Glyphosate: Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide that can be used to control weeds in established chilli crop. It should be applied carefully to avoid contact with the chilli plants.

  3. Diuron: Diuron is a selective pre-emergence herbicide that can be used to control weeds in chilli crop. It should be applied before planting the chilli seedlings.

  4. Atrazine: Atrazine is a selective post-emergence herbicide that can be used to control weeds in chilli crop. It should be applied after the chilli plants have emerged and reached a certain size.

It is important to note that the use of weedicides should be done carefully and in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Overuse or misuse of weedicides can harm the chilli plants and the environment. It is also important to practice good weed management practices such as hand weeding and crop rotation to minimize the need for weedicides.
