Control measures: In cereals, more rapid and complete germination and early canopy cover and their integration with post-emergence herbicides can help to reduce its infestation. In vegetables, inter-row cultivation, timely earthing up and manual weeding is important. Integrated management involving deep cultivation in April-May followed by herbicide application in June-July can help to reduce its infestation in fallow land.
