Although the cultivation of parsley is cultivated in small areas in our country, it is an important crop, contributing significantly to the income of growers. One of the major problems facing parsley growers is the lack of many approved pesticides, especially herbicides. This has the effect of increasing the cost of weeding. In a field experiment carried out during the period May-August 2016 at the farm of the University of Thessaly in Velestino, the selectivity of 4 precursor herbicides in parsley cultivation was evaluated. Following is the plan of randomized complete groups with three repetitions and 5 surgeries. The operations were as follows: 1) an impeccable witness, 2) pendimethalin, 3) linuron, 4) s-metolachlor and 5) isoxaflutole. To assess the selectivity of herbicides, the density of the crop, the height, the fresh weight, the dry weight and the relative concentration of chlorophyll in the parsley leaves were recorded. The results of the experiment showed that the herbicides pendimethalin, s-metolachlor and linuron did not affect the germination, growth and concentration of the chlorophyll of the crop, while the herbicide isoxaflutole significantly significantly reduced the negative effect on the growth and the growth. crop yield. Significant results have been reported on the effectiveness of herbicides. Measurements of weed density and dry weight showed that the herbicides isoxaflutole, s-metolachlor, linuron and pendimethalin did not fight perennial weeds, weevil and periwinkle vegetative growth, although the herbicide isox.

Also, in the parts where the pendimethalin was applied, the lowest density of the trivolium was recorded, while among the herbicides the highest density of the tuft was recorded in the linuron operation. The results showed that the herbicides s-metolachlor, linuron and pendimethalin can be applied to the cultivation of parsley, although it is necessary to evaluate them in different soils and different application doses.
