Abstract

Minimum sprouting and percent rotten bulbs were noted in trails received no inorganic fertilizer. Maximum weight loss was noted during 18.9.1996 to 3.10.1996 in NPK @ 90-100-60 kg/ha (16.32%) and @ 90-100-120 kg/ha (13.58%) while minimum weight loss was observed through out the storage period (2.7.1996-31.10.1996) in treatments FYM only and control. Data collected for bulb sizes showed significant differences between the two sizes. Small bulbs always showed higher percent weight loss and rotting while percent sprouting was maximum in larger bulbs.
