Abstract


Field experiments were conducted for two seasons on medium black soils to know the Influence of different weed management practices on growth and yield of garlic (Allium sativum L.) . The experiment was conducted with BLG-1 genotype. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block Design with three replications having fifteen treatments each. The treatments consisted of six herbicides with two concentrations each along with two manual weeding treatments and an unweeded control. The cultural practices were practiced as per the package of practices of University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. Among the different treatments, the herbicides like chlorimuron and chlomazone were highly toxic to garlic crop and resulted in 100 per cent mortality of the crop. While, least toxicity was observed in hand weeding treatments and the herbicides like oxyfluorfen and pendimethalin. The treatment weed free control was superior for all the growth parameters at all the stages of crop growth during all the seasons, and was followed by oxyfluorfen @ 0.10 kg and 0.20 kg a.i. ha-1 and pendimethalin @ 1.0 kg a.i. ha-1. While, the least values for all the parameters was observed in unweeded control at all the stages. The yield parameters and yield were significantly higher in weed free control and was followed by oxyfluorfen (0.10 kg a.i./ha), oxyfluorfen (0.20 kg a.i./ ha) and pendimethalin (1.0 kg a.i./ha). While, unweeded control recorded the least yield during all the seasons
