Being a shallow-rooted crop, onion extracts most of the water from the top 30cm of soil and is more sensitive to water stress during bulb formation and enlargement than during the vegetative stage. Lack of irrigation results in a shorter duration of bulb growth, a lower percentage radiation interception and a lower efficiency of conversion of radiation to dry matter and all these contribute to lowered bulb yield.
