A field experiment was conducted in sandy loam soil at Visva-Bharati University, Sriniketan, West Bengal in three consecutive rainy season of 2008, 2009 and 2010 to study the effect of crop establishment techniques and weed management on weed dynamics and yield of rice. Conventional transplanting method was found to be the most effective in controlling all categories of weeds throughout the growth period because of stagnation of water in the plots. Among weed management practices, pyrazosulfuron-ethyl (25 g/ha at 3 DAS/DAT) + mechanical weeding (cono-weeder) was the most effective in controlling the mixed weed flora. Similar trend was also observed in dry matter of weeds. The highest grain yield (3.75 t/ha) was obtained under system of rice intensification (SRI) with pyrazosulfuron-ethyl (25 g/ha at 3 DAS/DAT) + mechanical weeding while drum seeded with no weed control practices recorded the lowest grain yield (2.00 t/ha). SRI system with pyrazosulfuron-ethyl + mechanical weeding also gave the highest net return (‘ 19890/ha).
