      Dear Nandan,
      Due to intercroping,returning straw and leguminous companionship there is no
      problem of weed in N.F. of rice. SRI is having this problem due to
      tilling,mud making, and use of fertilizer and not returning straw. We
      control weed by straw mulching+ adding weeds of companion plants as mung.
      Thanks
      Raju
