A three-year trial on onion (Allium cepa L.) seed production by seed-to-seed method

A three-year trial on onion (Allium cepa L.) seed production by seed-to-seed method

Acta Horticulturae ( 533): 53-57

Field trials on an early onion cultivar Texas Grano and a late one Dorata di Parma were carried out at Cadriano, Bologna (northeastern Italy) in 1988, 1989, and 1990 to determine the effect of three sowing or seedling transplanting times (20 July, August, and September) for the "seed-to-seed" (20-600 plants m-2) method, and three GA3 rates (0-200 and 400 ppm, applied before bolting) on seed production.
