Why Onions Need Specialized Nutrients

Onions require specialized nutrients such as nitrogen for vigorous leaf growth, phosphorus for strong root development, and potassium for disease resistance and bulb quality.


Water deeply once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions, to ensure onions receive consistent moisture but avoid waterlogging.


To promote healthy growth and bulb development, provide onions with full sunlight for at least 6-8 hours daily.


For optimal onion growth, use well-drained, sandy loam soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8, enriched with organic matter.

Additional Tips

Mulch around onion plants to retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Feed onions with a balanced fertilizer every 2-3 weeks to ensure they receive consistent nutrients throughout their growing cycle.
