Abstract

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of spacing (20x10, 20x15 and 20x20cm) on the growth and yield of onion during 1992–93 and 1993–94. The wider spacing (20x20cm) showed maximum plant height, number of green leaves, diameter of longest leaf, diameter of pseudostem, number of roots, bulb length, diameter of bulb and fresh weight of bulb in comparison of closer spacing of 20x15 and 20x10 cm. However, the maximum yield of bulbs was obtained when the plants were spaced at 20x10 cm
