Vegetable Report
Abstract:
An exploratory field study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Nortron® (ethofumesate) herbicide for potential use in an onion weed control program. A rate range of 1.0 to 2.5 lb AI/A applied preemergence (PREE) demonstrated good safety on onions and no injury or crop stand reduction was observed. Sowthistle was the most numerous weed present and Nortron did not reduce it relative to the untreated check. Dacthal® (DCPA) significantly reduced the number of sowthistle relative to the untreated and to Nortron treatments. Onion height was reduced by Dacthal about 40 %.
