FERREIRA, Lino R.; DURIGAN, Julio C. and CHURATA-MASCA, Manuel G. C.. Selectivity of herbicides for onions in direct sowing. Planta daninha [online]. 1999, vol.17, n.1, pp. 53-62. ISSN 0100-8358. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-83581999000100005.
The plants of onions, from direct sowing, have shown to be quite sensitive toward herbicides recommended for transplanted culture, especially those acting on dycotiledoneous weeds. The effects of dose fractionating of herbicides oxyfluorfen, ioxynil-octanoato, fluazifop-p-butil and sethoxydim were evaluated in two cultivars (Granex Ouro and Granex 33), in the direct sowing system. The tolerance of the two cultivars toward oxyfluorfen and ioxynyl-octanoato increased with the plants age and with the parceling of the doses, applying smaller doses in the two leaves stage. Sethoxydim and fluazifop-p-butyl were selective for the culture, regardless of the applied initial doses and the evaluated cultivar.
