Acta Horticulturae (53): 35-42

Premature bolting of onion (Allium cepa L.) in the arid tropics of the Sudan

A local red-skin onion was sown monthly between July and February to determine the effect of the sowing date on premature bolting and bulb splitting.

Late-winter application of 5000 ppm (2-chloroethyl)phosphonic acid (ethephon) to fall-seeded short-day onions (A. cepa L.) retarded leaf growth and inhibited bolting. Bolting inhibition was greatest when bulb diameter was 0.9-1.6 cm at time of tre...
