Onion Allium cepa L. (2n=16) is the most important bulbous vegetable. It forms an indispensable part of many diets, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Onion is regarded as an important export oriented crop and fetches a handsome foreign exchange. Onion among vegetables has very poor competitive ability with weeds due to its inherent characteristics such as shallow root system, narrow leaf and less area. The reduction in crop yield has direct correlation with weed competition. The effective weed control involves identification of weed flora and their management through suitable methods. Hand weeding in onion is a common practice in India, but due to less availability of labourers during critical period of crop makes hand weeding difficult leading to heavy yield losses. Hence a brief review was presented to find out suitable weed management method in onion.

Keywords: Onion, Stale seed bed, Herbicide, Pendimethalin, Oxyfluorfen
