ALLIUM PRODUCTION SYSTEMS IN BANGLADESH
Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon climate marked by sweltering temperatures and high humidity.
Onion and garlic play an important role in national agricultural production and farming systems. These crops are grown everywhere in the country during winter as backyard crops in sole cropping or intercropped with other vegetables. In addition to bulbs, green leaves of onion are also used for cooking and in salads.
Farmers in Bangladesh produce these crops for their own consumption and surplus for marketing and export. The production system is described in this paper.
