In northern areas, approximately 3–4 in. of soil should cover the cloves. In extreme northern areas, add mulch once the tops of the bulbs die back after fall planting. onions as this can encourage stem rot. Insure ample moisture especially after bulbs begin enlarging. Onions should be harvested when about two-thirds of the tops have fallen over. Careful handling to avoid bruising helps control storage rots. Onions may be pulled and left in the field for several days to.

Sclerotia can spread throughout a field, or from field to field, via flood water, equipment, or plant material, such as wind-blown scales. Onions of all colors (including white) are good sources of vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium and folate, while garlic is rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6.

However, the harvesting of onion bulbs depends on the variety, planting season, market price, climate condition, used for onion production. But, usually, onion bulbs are harvested when the neck fall reaches to 50 %age of the total crop since harvesting at full maturity is beneficial in higher production.

After harvesting, onions can be stored. 3 cloves of garlic; 1 onion (preferably a red onion) 1 slice of ginger root (about an inch) 3 lemons; 1/2 a cup of pure honey; Preparation: Firstly, peel the garlic clove, then chop it and grind it in a pestle and mortar until you get a thick paste.
