Effects of onion (Allium cepa L.) bulb size and spacing on seed yield and quality at Minna, Nigeria



Effects of onion (Allium cepa L.) bulb size and spacing on seed yield and quality at Minna, Nigeria



Onion Newsletter for the Tropics ( 7): 36-38



In a field trial, the effects of bulb size at planting (medium - average weight 38.5 g; or small - average weight 22.4 g) on Kano Red seed yield and quality were investigated. Data collected included the number of inflorescences per bulb, inflorescence height, 100-seed weight and germination percentage (at 30 degrees C with a 12-h photoperiod). Bulb size had no significant effect on the parameters studied.
