Resumen

Four onion varieties of onion (Allium cepa) were studied in order to evaluate their behavior in the edaphoclimatic conditions of Ignacio Agramonte CCS, Camalote Agricultural Company, municipality of Nuevitas, Camaguey, Cuba. A randomized block design with four treatments and three replicas was used on alluvial soil, between November 2013 and March 2014. For evaluation of the phenological behavior and the crop´s yield indicators, plant height, number of leaves, bulb diameter, bulb formation, and yields (t/ha), were evaluated. One-way variance analysis was made to the data collected. The Hybrid Yellow Granex had the best bulb formation (90%); Texas Early Granex 502 had the highest yield (17 t/ha).
