The aim of the work is to provide independent assessment of the yield, quality and storage potential of new onion varieties propagated from both seed and sets.

Relatively small differences between varieties can have a significant impact on profitability. 
Independent, relevant results are essential if growers are to maximise their profits.  The wrong variety choice or use of incorrect husbandry on an otherwise suitable variety can be costly.
