Effect of mother bulb size on bolting, leaves, seed stalk numbers and seed yield in onion (Allium cepa L.)



Effect of mother bulb size on bolting, leaves, seed stalk numbers and seed yield in onion (Allium cepa L.)



Sarhad Journal of Agriculture 11(5): 591-597



Various sizes of mother onion bulbs (50, 100, 150 and 200 g/bulb) were evaluated for days to bolting, number of leaves and seed stalks and seed yield per plant and per hectare at Peshawar in 1989-90. The number of days to bolting was not affected by the size of the mother bulb. However, an increase in bulb size from 50 to 200 g/bulb significantly increased leaf and seed stalk numbers from 16.25 to 20.00 and 1.91 to 7.75/plant, respectively.
