About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Low yield of onions


A new variety of onion was produced by mix-matching. This Onion variety is a high yielding variety with very good keeping quality due to its tightly attached skin. Its yield is about 350 q/ha and good thickness of rings, tolerance to stemphylium blight and moderate pungency are the other features, which have been noticed. Its dark red coloured globular shaped bulb about 5 cm diameter, neck thickness of 0.8 cm and 50-60 g weight appears more attractive than the conventional ones with firm, bright red coloured, mild pungent bulb with average yield 200 (q/ha).
