Abstract:

The main onion growing states in India are Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Punjab. It is used as a salad or cooked in various ways in all curies, fried or baked and also used in processed form e.g. flakes powder, paste, crush and pickle, etc. Lack of recommended or released variety of high yielding as well as good keeping quality in the country, it creates price fluctuation during off season arrival period. To meet out the domestic requirement and also to fulfil the export demand, selection of high yielding genotype under different agro climatic condition is necessary. The study conducted during Kharif, 2017 at Nashik revealed that highest gross yield (259.45 q/ha) and marketable yield (243.52 q/ha) were recorded in the line L-883. The highest ‘A’ grade bulbs (41.84 %) was also recorded in the same line. It is concluded from the study the L-883 can be utilized for as a Kharif onion variety for higher yield and other traits.
