      Pendimethalin (Prowl7) applied preemergence (PREE) at 0.25 to 0.50 lb AI/A caused no observable injury and did not affect yields of onions that were furrow irrigated . Prowl applied PREE at 0.50 lb AI/A caused significant crop stand and yield reduction compared to lower rates or the untreated check under sprinkler irrigation. Prowl applied preplant incorporated (PPI) at rates ranging from 0.25 to 0.75 lb AI/A did not significantly injure onions or cause a significant yield reduction. Combination treatments of Prowl plus bensulide (Prefar7) applied PREE did not cause any measurable crop height or stand reduction compared to the standard treatment or untreated check. Prowl at 0.25 lb AI/A plus Prefar at 4.0 lb AI/A adequately controlled cheeseweed, yellow sweetclover, sowthistle, and London rocket.
