Application of Pendimethalin @ 1 kg ha-1 was the most effective for minimum weed dry weight compared to un-weeded check. While different levels of management through fertilizers on weed dry weight was found non-significant. Ammonium Sulphate @ 200 kg ha-1 gave significantly lower dry weight of broomrape over Control. Whereas, Manual removal recorded significantly the lowest dry weight of broomrape.
