Onion Red KGP
|Onion Red Kichen Garden Packet :|
Onion thrives better in cool season. Long days favor bulb formation. For ripening, dry weather is favorable. Drought conditions are very harmful for plant growth and bulb formation.
Onion prefers to grow well and form good size of bulbs in a soil rich in organic matter, well drained, friable with ability to retain soil moisture. The seedlings require transplantation. Once the seeds are sown and about 10 to 15 cm in height they should be transplanted into the field at a distance of 15 cms between plants and 30 cms between rows. Just after transplanting of seedlings, light irrigation is essential.
Irrigation should be with held 15 to 20days before commencement of maturity, otherwise it will delay the maturity and reduce the quality of bulbs, Onion are not recommended be grown in pots.
The onions are harvested in about 90-95 days of sowing. When bulbs become fully mature, the maturity is indicated by drooping of the tops just above the bulb known as neck fall. The harvesting is done by pulling the bulbs.
