Effect of size of onion sets and planting distance on growth, yield and quality of kharif onion



Effect of size of onion sets and planting distance on growth, yield and quality of kharif onion



Newsletter Associated Agricultural Development Foundation 12(1): 3-5



Four set sizes (1-1.5, 1.5-2, 2-2.5 or 2.5-3 cm) of onion N-53 were planted at distances between ridges of 30 or 45 cm, during 1983-85. Planting was carried out in Aug. Highest neck thickness, percentage bolting, and percentage of doubles were obtained with 2.5-3 cm sets. No significant differences in marketable yield were obtained between set sizes.
