A field investigation entitled “Effect of various tillage practices on weed control and soybean productivity” was conducted at research farm of AICRP on Weed Management, Department of Agronomy, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (Maharashtra) during the year 2016-17 on medium deep black soil. The experiment was laid out in strip plot design with three replications. There were eighteen treatment combinations consisting six tillage and crop management practices. On the basis of results obtained in the present investigation, the weed management treatment i.e. integrated weed management (HHW) found to be superior in controlling the weed over treatment of recommended herbicide (RH) and weedy check, and in case of plant growth, yield attributes and yield of soybean were significantly increased with tillage treatment of 2 Harrowing by tyne cultivator + 1 Harrowing by blade harrow + planking + Residue (CTR) as compared to other tillage treatments.
