Abstract

Onion and garlic crops are highly susceptible to weed infestation because they
grow slowly on the first stages and can be easily compromised by weeds. Our study was made at the Didactical research Station of Banu maracine which belongs to the University of Craiova, Romania. We have tried three herbicide active ingredients: metolachlor, pendimetalin and oxyfluorfen. The crops were: sown onion, planted onion and planted garlic. On postemergence we have tried four concentrations of oxyfluoerfen as Goal 2E herbicide. The reason why we tried these substances is that the information on the herbicide leaflet does not provide enough knowledge for postemergent application on sown onion and planted garlic. Our resilts have shown that the sown onion and garlic can not be sprayed by 5 ml in 5 litres water while planted onion resists to even 33 ml in 5 litres water.
