Vidalia onions: Alternative to hand-transplanting proven effective
Date:12/29/2008

total, jumbo or medium yields, and sowing onions in late October did not produce sufficient stand or yield to warrant harvesting. Variety also had no affect on yield of direct-seeded onions. Flowering, or seedstems, considered an undesirable characteristic, was significantly greater when the onions were sown in early October, compared to later sowing dates. Neither variety nor sowing date significantly affected plant stand or plant spacing.

"We recommend that growers direct-seed onions in southeastern Georgia in mid-October, plus or minus one week depending on field accessibility. In addition, current fertilizer recommendations for dry bulb onions should be followed. This eliminates all of the cost and resources required for transplant production", stated Boyhan. He noted that onions from transplants will likely predominate in the Vidalia region for the forseeable future. But direct seeding as an alternative method can save growers money. If the labor force necessary for hand harvesting becomes scarce, direct seeding can be a viable and cost-effective alternative.
