Common mallow, Malva neglecta with fast growing potential and broad leaves is one of the most hazardous weeds, which compete with saffron. In order to find a suitable herbicide, the field experiments were conducted during 2005-2006, at the Agricultural Research Station of Zahak-Zabol. The experiments were designed as a randomized complete block with six treatments and three replications, in a six-year-old saffron field. The herbicide treatments were scheduled after harvesting of saffron flowers, when the weed was in 3-5 leaf-growth stage.
