Acta Horticulturae (52): 259-262

The effect of the size of the sets on the intensity of growth, maturity and qualitative properties of onion

In studies with the onion cvs Ptujski and Zitavski Zuti the highest daily increase in plant weight was obtained in onions grown from the largest sets, especially in the former Set size did not affect bulb dry matter content but had a beneficial effect on the chemical composition of Zitavski Zuti, a characterized by a flow growth rate.
