    Author(s): Desta Tesfaye and Israel Zewudi*

    Onion is an important vegetable crop, which has produced worldwide including of Ethiopia for its daily uses and economic benefits. Under the scarcity of irrigation water, the need to use the available water economically and efficiently is unquestionable. Deficit irrigation improves water use efficiency, by maintaining soil moisture content below optimum level throughout the growing season. The objective of this study was to study the effect of onion yield response to irrigation level during low and high sensitive growth stages and bulb quality under semi-arid climate conditions. An experiment was conducted for three consecutive seasons to investigate the effect of water stress imposed at different growth stages on bulb yield and water productivity of onion (Allium cepa L.). This was mainly related to low adoption of onion production package. The objective of this .. Read More»
