Wheat growers have been advised to remove weeds to obtain good and quality yield of the crop. Punjab Agriculture Department sources said that according to an estimate, weeds could reduce production up to 50 per cent.
They said that farmers should carry out anti-weed sprays. Growers were suggested not to carry out spray in case of fog, gusty winds or rain. Flat fan or T-jet nozzles should be used for spray and growers must make sure that same part of the crop is not sprayed twice.
