DThe study was conducted to evaluate the yield
performance of eleven (11) varieties of onion against the
commonly grown variety Texas Grano.
Materials and Methods
The eleven different cultivars were grown at three
different agroecological regions and the experimental
design was a complete randomized block design.
The results indicated that Crenola Digon was the best
performing onion variety as it produced the highest yield
of 17.35t/ha followed by Texas Grano (16.49 t/ha), then
and Regent F1 and Star 5525 (15.53t/ha and 15.52t/ha
respectively). Further, Crenola Digon had limited
physiological disorders including less rotting upon
