Allium crop situation in Argentina

, : Allium crop situation in Argentina. Acta Horticulturae ( 433): 35-52

Garlic and onion comprise about 95% of the Allium crops grown in Argentina. The remaining 5% is grown with other minor species such as shallot, bunching onion and leek. The semiarid region concentrates the production of dry-bulbs, totalling about 28 000 ha per year of irrigated crops. Onion and garlic reach 16 000 and 12 000 ha, respectively. Most of the production is used for fresh consumption.
