Results are given of four years' research on a loamy sand soil to broaden the spectrum of herbicides available for use in garlic, shallots and onions. In garlic and shallots, good results were obtained with carbetamide at 2.4 kg/ha post-em. following methabenzthiazuron at 2.1 kg/ha or neburon at 1.8 kg/ha pre-em. and with propyzamide at 1 kg/ha post-em. following neburon at 1.8 kg/ha or butralin at 1.8 kg/ha pre-em. In onions treated at sowing with propachlor at 4.55 kg/ha, ethofumesate at 1.5 kg/ha pre-em., alloxydim-sodium at 1.125 kg/ha post-em., bentazone at 1.44 kg/ha post-em. and diclofop-methyl at 1.08 kg/ha post-em. all performed well. Results with some of the compounds tested varied from year to year.
