An experiment was conducted at the BARI, Regional Station, Jamalpur during kharif 2016 to find out the suitable weeding methods for controlling weeds in sesame. The experiment consisting of 05 treatments were: Pre-emergence of weeding, Pre-emergence with one weeding at 20 DAE, One weeding at 20 DAE, Two weeding at 20 and 40 DAE and Control. Sesame along with higher yield and net returns could be achieved by keeping the crop weed free in several times through hand weeding and pre-emergence of herbicide application. Two weeding at 20 and 40 DAE have more significant among treatments which results less dry weight (g), high weed control efficiency (WCE %) and high yield.
