For soils with severe salinization or compaction, it is best to apply biological bacterial fertilizer together with compound fertilizer as the base fertilizer.
Weeding and covering the film

Seedling transplanting by onion transplanting machine
The onion seedlings can be transplanted in 60 days. The seedling trays should be kept moist for about 7 days before transplantation, and you should water the trays to make the substrate compact. In addition, use a blade to scrape off the excess root system at the bottom of the seedling tray so that the onion transplanting machine can work smoothly.
The transplanting time can also be selected according to the condition of the seedlings. It is necessary to select seedlings with developed root systems, robust growth and uniform size. Do not use diseased seedlings, branch seedlings, or overgrown or undergrown seedlings. Most important, select the seedlings according to the height and thickness of them.
What should you note?
1. You can firstly select the strong seedlings when using onion transplanting machine. After grading, seedlings of the same size can be planted together for easier management,which also is able to promote consistent field growth.
2. When transplanting, the seedlings should be vertical, and cannot be turned upside and down.
At present, in the onion cultivation experiment, the control of pest and diseases relies on artificial spraying of pesticides, which can effectively reduce the growth of pests, increasing the final yield. Onions are susceptible to downy mildew, purple spot, and blight. Pest control also can be carried out according to weather conditions.
