Prospects of onion seed production in Taiwan



Prospects of onion seed production in Taiwan



FFTC/ASPAC Book Series (36): 166-176



A review and discussion. In Taiwan, the poor storage quality of bulbs, and seed deterioration due to high humidity before harvest have limited seed production. Although 3 cultivars have been released by local district agricultural improvement stations, the main cultivar grown is Texas Early Grano, introduced in 1954. Cultivars whose bulbs have high dry matter and pyruvic acid contents and a low N content have the best bulb storage quality.
