The effect of the period of low temperature before overwinter on bolting and flowering in extremely early maturing onion varieties

The effect of the period of low temperature before overwinter on bolting and flowering in extremely early maturing onion varieties

Acta Horticulturae: 1, 109-113

Extremely early maturing onion cultivars have fewer and variable bolting number compared with medium and late maturing onion cultivars for seed production. These cultivars are sensitive to and at variance with environmental factors making seed production difficult. Generally, in onions, flower bud formation is determined by its reaction to low temperature around 10 degrees C and the mother bulb vegetative growth.
