Abstract

Weeds reduce crop yield up to a great extent. Farmers use Integrated Weed Management (IWM) to eradicate weeds. The present study was conducted to assess farmer’s perception regarding the effectiveness of various weed control methods utilized under the umbrella of IWM in the Punjab province of Pakistan. Information were collected from 150 randomly selected farmers from three divisions of Punjab viz Faisalabad, Rawalpindi and Dera Ghazi Khan. The study revealed chemical methods as the most effective weed control tool followed by cultural methods and mechanical methods. Preventive measures were ranked as 4th and biological methods as the last.
