Evaluation of New Preemergence and Postemergence Herbicides for Onion Weed Control
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn the preemergence test, flumioxazin at 0.1 to 0.3 lb AI/A severely reduced the onion crop stand. Flumioxazin applied caused significant onion injury of 23 to 37% at 2 WAT for rates of 0.04 to 0.1 lb AI/A. Fluroxypyr and carfentrazone applied postemergence did not show any onion injury at 5 WAT. Fluroxypyr and carfentrazone did not offer acceptable control of annual yellow sweetclover at any rate. Carfentrazone at 0.063 lb AI/A demonstrated activity on lambsquarters and control nearly approached acceptable levels at 83% after 5 WAT. Fluroxypyr did not provide acceptable control of lambsquarters.
