An experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of different pre and post emergence herbicides on weed dynamics, weed density and yield of field pea during rabi season of 2010-2011 and 2011-12 at Pantnagar in tarai soil of Uttarakhand. Results revealed that Phalaris minor, Cyprerus rotundus and Argemone Mexicana were the pre-dominant weed species contributing 20.3, 16.1 and 15.8% of total population under weedy check condition respectively. It was observed that uncontrolled weeds caused 27.3 and 39.4% reduction in grain yield of dwarf fieldpea during first and second year, respectively as compared to two hand weedings done at 20 and 40 days after sowing (DAS).  The highest weed control efficiency was recorded under two hand weedings followed by pendimethalin 1.0 kg/ha (PE)+ imazethapyr 0.05 kg/ha (POE, 30 DAS) and pendimethalin 1.0 kg/ha  (PE)+ quizalofop ethyl  0.05 kg/ha (POE, 30 DAS). Two hand weedings done at 20 and 40 DAS, which remained at par with pendimethalin1.0 kg/ha (PE)+ imazethapyr 0.05 kg/ha (POE,30 DAS) and pendimethalin 1.0 kg/ha (PE)+ quizalofop ethyl 0.05 kg/ha (POE, 30 DAS) caused significant reduction in weed population  and produced 27.1, 23.1 and 16.0% more number of pods/plant and yielded 50, 40 and 35.7% higher grain yield, respectively over weedy check.

Key words: Weed dynamics, Phalaris minor, Cyprerus rotundus,  Argemone Mexicana, Pre-emergence, Post-emergence
