Abstract:

For yield and quality enhancement production techniques play a critical role. Among the various crop management strategies, weed management is an important practice which significantly contributes to yield and quality improvement of onion. The present study was conducted to compare the efficacy of various herbicides treatments on yield and quality attributing traits of onion. Five herbicides such as pendimethalin, oxyflurofen, alachlor, butachlor and quizalofop ethyl were used alone or in different combinations. All the different weed control practices significantly influenced the yield and quality attributing traits. Among the herbicidal treatments, highest yield was obtained with application of oxyfluorfen 0.15 kg/ha followed by one hand weeding and pre emergence application of oxyfluorfen 0.15 kg /hafollowed by post emergence quizalofop ethyl 0.05 kg/ha. Further, highest values were recorded in same treatments for quality traits such as pyruvic acid and total soluble solids (TSS). Therefore, pre emergence application of oxyfluorfen 0.15 kg/ha followed by post emergence quizalofop ethyl 0.05 kg/ha can be effectively used for weed control in onion under sub-tropical region of Jammu
