Abstract: Field experiments were carried out at Vegetable Research Farm, JNKVV, Jabalpur during three consecutive years 2009-12 to find out the efficacy of different herbicides in onion crop. The dominant weed flora recorded over Chenopodium album, Melilotusalbus, Eragrostis cillansis, Parthenium hysterophorus, Anagallis arvensisL., Cyperus rotundus and Sperogula arvensis. Among the various treatments, the application of Oxyfluorfen 23.5% EC before planting + Quizalofop ethyl 5 % EC at 30 days after transplanting recorded highest weed control efficiency and higher marketable bulb yield with cost benefit ratio.
