Effect of date of planting on growth, yield and quality of onion (Allium cepa L.)



Effect of date of planting on growth, yield and quality of onion (Allium cepa L.)



Vegetable Science 29(2): 164-166



Eight-week-old onion Baswant-780 seedlings were transplanted in flat beds bed during the 19th of every month in a field experiment conducted in Rahuri, Maharashtra, India to determine the effects of planting date on the yield and quality of the crop. The equatorial and polar bulb diameter were highest in onions planted on 19 April, whereas bulb neck thickness and yield were highest with planting of seedlings on 9 May.
