In orther to determine the critical period for weed control in the Chitti bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) line KS-21467 a field study was conducted at the Bean Research Station of Khomein by a randomized completele block design in 2001 and 2002. The treatments included weed free and weed infested period until 20, 28, 36 and 44 days after planting (DAP) with two weed free and weedy checks. The results indicated that the critical period at 5% allowable yield loss was 20-53 DAP (between first-trifoliate and flowering stages) in 2001 and 35-51 DAP ( between blossom and flowering stages) in 2002. Weed dry weight decreased averaglly 81% in weed-free period until 44 DAP compared to the weedy check. Yeild decreased averaglly 63% in weedy check compared to the weed free check. Weed competition increased the height of bean, wherease 100-seed weights and the number of seeds per pod were not substantially affected. There was a negative and significant correlation of weed dry weight with the number of pods per plant, the number of seeds per plant and yeild.
