Seedstalk and bulb development in the onion (Allium Cepa L.)

Seedstalk and bulb development in the onion (Allium Cepa L.)

Bull. Cornell agric. Exp. Sta, 708: 21. bibl. 12

A study was made at Ithaca, New York, of the effect of size of onion sets and of storage temperature on subsequent seedstalk development and on yield of marketable bulbs as well as of the effect of temperature and length of photoperiod during growth on seedstalk development and on bulb formation. The following notes are taken from the summary. Large sets of 3 onion varieties produced yearly a much higher percentage of seedstalks than did medium size and small sets.
