Abstract: An investigation was conducted to ascertain the production potentials of different genotypes of onion (Allium cepa L.) were carried out in Main Horticultural Research and Extension Centre, University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot during 2016. Experiment was conducted with nine different varieties of onion. Among them, growth parameters like, more number of leaves were observed in Arka Bindu (12.62), highest plant height is seen in Arka Bheema (59.12cm) and the highest leaf length reported in Arka Kalyan (50.37). No.of rings- the highest is seen in Arka Pragati (10.50) and lowest in Arka Kalyan (7.70). TSS was found highest in Arka Keetiman (14.70 ᵒ B). Among yield parameters, bulb weight was the highest in Arka Pragati (212.62 g), total weight was reported highest in Arka Pragati (12.75 kg). Thus onion is an important crop with many medicinal values, it has good yield and quality attributes. Thus identification of promising varieties as a commercial crop for the area with high yield and quality fruits would help the farmers in its adoption and improving their economic status.
