Field trials were conducted on statistical basis at the Maize Breeding Station, Amberpet both in Kharif and Rabi seasons during 1971–72. Herbicides like Tafazine, Atra-taf, Atrataf + Sutan and Lasso were used at different doses.

The results indicate that Atrataf at 4.48 kg/ha in combination with Sutan at 1.25 gal./ha was found to be the best treatment, followed by hand weeding treatment. Next in rank Atrataf @4.48, 6.72 kg/ha and Lasso at 3.0 and 6.0 L/ha respectively were observed with satisfactory weed control and good grain yields. Hence Atrataf alone @ 6.72 kg/ha or combination of Atrataf at 4.48 kg/ha and Sutan at 1.25 gal./ha can be recommended for usage.
