Major Vegetables and Rootcrops Quarterly Bulletin, July to September 2016

July 2016 to September 2016

Bermuda Onion (Red Creole and Yellow Granex)

For July-September 2016, production of bermuda onion was estimated at 19 metric tons which was 210.7 percent higher than last year’s 6 metric tons.
The gain in output maybe accounted to shifting from the production of native onion in Nueva Vizcaya due to availability of planting materials from Department of Agriculture and Local Government Units (DA and LGUs).
Cagayan Valley recorded production of 16 metric tons and represented 86.3 percent of the total bermuda onion production this quarter.
