Farmers advised to remove weeds from gram crops


Agriculture experts advised farmers to remove weeds from gram crops immediately to get a bumper production.

A spokesman for the agriculture (extension) department said here on Saturday that weeds were very dangerous for gram crops, therefore, farmers should remove all types of weeds from their crops on a top priority basis.

He said growers could use herbicide for elimination of weeds. However, they should prefer to “Godi” through rotary-weeder instead of using spray because this method would not only help in decreasing input cost but also save living things as well as environment from ill impacts of herbicide spray.—APP
