Author(s): DS Vitnor, Sushil S Vitnor, GS Pagire and GR Tambe
Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at Horticulture Instructional Farm, C. P. College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar (Gujarat), during Rabi season of 2012-13 to investigate the effect of methods of harvesting and time of curing on yield of Rabi onion after field and shade curing, where the onion bulbs were kept three months upto September under ambient conditions to assess the post-harvest losses. The results indicated that maximum yield per plot (24.434 kg), yield per hectare (363.61 q), marketable yield per plot (22.844 kg), marketable yield per hectare (339.95 q) were recorded with treatment (m1), whereas the minimum unmarketable yield per plot (0.792 kg), unmarketable yield per hectare (11.78 q) were recorded with m3 (Harvesting without irrigation). Maximum yield per plot (24.798 kg), yield per hectare (368.88 q), marketable yield per plot (22.922 kg and marketable yield per hectare (341.10 q) were recorded with c5 (No Curing). The minimum unmarketable yield per plot (0.707 kg), unmarketable yield per hectare (10.38 q) were recorded with c2 (Four days curing in field condition).
