Evaluation of different bulb size, spacing and varieties for higher seed yield and yield attributing traits of onion (Allium cepa L.)



Evaluation of different bulb size, spacing and varieties for higher seed yield and yield attributing traits of onion (Allium cepa L.)



Crop Research Hisar 17(3): 351-355



Three onion bulb sizes (2.5-3, 3-4 and 4-5 cm), 3 spacings (15 x 30, 30 x 30 and 30 x 45 cm) and 2 cultivars (Kalyanpur Round Red and Nasik Red) were tested in a trial in Allahabad, India during 1992-93 and 1993-94 with a view to increasing seed yield and quality. The largest bulb size with the widest spacing gave the highest seed yield/plant, although the smallest bulbs produced the biggest umbels on average.
