Black gram (Vigna mungo) is an ancient and well-known leguminous crop of Asia belonging to leguminaceae family. The field experiments were conducted at Shivalik Agricultural Farm, SIPS, Dehradun. The experiments were laid out in randomized block design with 7 treatments and three replications. The yield parameters were significantly influenced by application of weed control measures. The maximum yield attributing parameters observed number of pods plant-1, numbers of seed pod-1 and grain yield, straw yield were recorded with the application of pendimethalin (PE) 1kg ha-1 followed by one HW at 40 DAS. It revealed from results that among all the treatments, the application of pendimethalin (PE) 1 kg ha-1 followed by one HW at 40 DAS given the better and profitable results with respect to yield attributes efficient treatment to control the weeds.

Keywords: Yield attributes, grain yield, straw yield, number of pods plant-1
