Review of the Intra Row Spacing Effect on the Yield & Yield Component of Onion (Allium cepa L.)

Hailu Amanuel


Onion is an important vegetable crop, which has produced worldwide including our country for its daily uses as food, house hold income generation and medicinal plants. Although it is very important and have high requirement in Ethiopia, the productivity of this crop is less than the world’s average because of many things. The main reason for this lower productivity of the crop is most probably lack of inappropriate agronomic practices, luck of high yielding varieties and little given attention to the crop. From the agronomic practices, plant population depending on soil condition, variety and environmental condition is the main one. Hence, most of the grower uses cultural knowledge of agronomic practices which are inferior in production and productivity. Therefore, this paper mainly focuses on the previous work done on the agronomic improvement (plant population) practices in the country and its future progress.
