Seed yield in relation to bulb size and umbel number in onion (Allium cepa cv. aggregatum)



Seed yield in relation to bulb size and umbel number in onion (Allium cepa cv. aggregatum)



International Journal of Plant Sciences Muzaffarnagar 2(1): 12-15



The demand of onion in domestic and international market is increasing day by day but non-availability of recast quality seed is a limitation for profitable production programme of onion. Selection of larger (>2.5 cm in diameter or mean 100-seed bulbs weight of 1360 g) and medium size (2.1-2.5 cm in diameter or mean 100-seed bulbs weight of 780 g) mother bulbs and allowing all umbels without cutting will result in higher seed yield and quality for commercial seed production.
