Onion Crop Growth Stage and Status Last Modified: 07/24/13

The spring sown-crop onion crop is now at growth stages 8-10 and harvest season is near its end.

Bulb yields and quality have been good as environmental conditions have been ideal. This will

be the final report from New Mexico for this year.

 

Weather Impacts (temperature, rain, hail, freezing) Last Modified: 07/24/13

Temperatures have been unseasonably cool (mid to high 80s) and chances of precipitation have

increased. The monsoon season has begun and recent precipitation may delay harvest slightly in

some areas.

Thrips

Thrips numbers (adult and juvenile) ranged from 0 to 80 per plant with a mean of 14 per plant in

the final remaining unharvested sentinel plot (1).

Soil-borne Diseases (Damping Off, Pink Root, Fusarium)

Pink root has become more apparent in some sentinel plots as harvest draws nearer. However,

losses appear to be minor.

Fungal Diseases (purple blotch, downy mildew, Botrytis)

Bacterial Diseases (Xanthomonas, center rot, soft rots)

Onion Crop Growth Stage and Status Last Modified: 07/12/13

The spring sown-crop onion crop is now at growth stage 7-10 with harvest drawing to a close in

the coming weeks. Bulb yields and quality have been good as environmental conditions have

been ideal, albeit warm, necessitating frequent irrigations (every 5-7 days until dry down for

harvest).

 

Weather Impacts (temperature, rain, hail, freezing) Last Modified: 07/12/13

Temperatures have been in the high 90s with the onset of the monsoon season. Temperatures

may decrease in the coming weeks with increased cloud cover. There has been very little

accumulated rainfall for any given location, although some locations have received trace

amounts. The monsoon season has begun, increasing the chances of rain as harvest finishes up.

Thrips

Thrips numbers (adult and juvenile) averaged 1 to 18 per plant in the remaining three

unharvested sentinel plots. Thrips numbers have increased as harvest approaches.

Other

Some minor leaf miner damage has been reported in some sentinel plots. In addition, some

storm (hail and wind) damage has also been reported.

Onion Crop Growth Stage and Status Last Modified: 06/26/13

The autumn-sown crop is mostly harvested and the spring sown-crop is at growth stage 6-9 with

harvest continuing over the coming weeks. Bulb yields and quality should be good as

environmental conditions have been ideal, albeit warm, necessitating frequent irrigations (every

5-7 days until dry down for harvest).

 

Weather Impacts (temperature, rain, hail, freezing) Last Modified: 06/26/13

Temperatures have increased to the low 100s, but this is normal for this time of year. The

temperatures have been ideal for onion growth. There has been very little rainfall, although some

locations have received trace amounts. The “monsoon” season typically begins in early July, but

significant rainfall is not expected in the next two weeks.

Thrips

Thrips numbers (adult and juvenile) averaged 0 to 10 per plant depending upon the sentinel plot.

There is a wide diversity of thrips pressure in the sentinel plots sampled with some quite low,

some with moderate pressure, and others with “spotty” pressure likely due to proximity to the

edge of the field and crops in adjacent fields.
