Influence of bulb size and plant spacing on seed production in onion (Allium cepa L.)



Influence of bulb size and plant spacing on seed production in onion (Allium cepa L.)



Progressive Horticulture 1993; 23(1-4): 76-79



Onion (cv. Nasik Red) bulbs of 3 sizes (2.1-3.0 cm, 3.1-5.0 cm or 5.1-7.0 cm diameter) were planted at 5 spacings (30 x 30 cm, 45 x 30 cm, 45 x 45 cm, 60 x 30 cm or 60 x 45 cm). The highest number of scapes/plant, seeds/umbel and seed yield/plant were obtained with large bulbs (5.1-7.0 cm) planted at 60 x 45 cm.
