Abstract

The present investigation was conducted at AICRP on vegetable crops, Department of Horticulture, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri during rabi season 2015-16. The finding revealed that, among the herbicide treatment Oxyfluorfen 23.5 EC PoE @ 0.150 kg a.i./ha + Quizalofop ethyl 5% EC PoE @ 0.050 kg a.i./ha recorded maximum growth viz., plant height, number of leaves per plant. Significantly maximum number of cloves per bulb, bulb length, bulb diameter, average weight of bulb, yield per plot and per hectare also registered by same treatment. Further, lowest weed index (5.12%) and maximum weed control efficiency (84.17%) recorded by same herbicide treatment. This indicates application of Oxyfluorfen @0.150 kg a.i.+ Quizalofop Ethyl 0.05 kg a.i./ha as post emergence herbicide is better option for controlling weed population and obtaining better yield of garlic.
