Onions

Onions have slowly become major part of our root crop rotation. We continue to supply both ‘packing’ and ‘box scheme’ markets.

This year we have 20 hectares of onions in production Рa  mixture of sets and drilled (variety Hylander).

We are also growing red onions this year (variety Red Hylander)

Both varieties appear to have excellent resistance against downey mildew, a major issue in organic production. The southerly aspect of some of our fields has also helped greatly.

As part of our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) we grow the onions near our early carrots in order to help control aphids and other pests.
