CULTIVATION of onions. How Oaii.ns for Market May Be Started In llotbe.ls with Trofit. At the Ohio experiment station it has been domo;i;';;ated that onion seed may bo sown iu tho greenhouse or hotbed in February or March and successfully transplanted to the open ground in April or May. Compared with onionsj-Town by the ordinary method the transplanted ones were from 50 to 100 per cent, ahead in size and total marketable product. A marked difference has been observed in varieties, however, as to their adaptability adapta-bility to this method of treatment. - It is reported that the early varieties appear to be the class of oqions best adapted to this method. ' Nearly all are white and much flattened. Some attain five inches in diameter and less than two inches iu thickness. If sown in February and transplanted into the open ground as early as it can tie worked in, the spring, the yonng onions may 'bo pulled for bunching in May and June or nearly as early as those grown from, sets. , By July 1 they are ripe enough to be pulled and sold in the dry state. Both in the green and dry state they are much superior to onions grown from sets and sell for a higherprice. Also not only do tlmy.briug a fancy price, but the ground is cleared in time for celery or other fall crops. Early varieties that gave the most satisfactory sat-isfactory results at the station were the Barletta, Marzajola, Pearl and Bermuda. The first named is the earliest, while the Marzajola is two weeks later but much larger. The Barletta is sold under many names, ruch as Extra Early Barletta, Adriatic Barletta, New Early Adriatic, Bloomsrlale Pearl, New Queen, Early-Radish, Early-Radish, etc. Some of the second early sorts, such as Danvers, Wethersfield, Michigan and White Globe do not respond re-spond so readily to this method of treatment treat-ment as the extreme early and late sorts. The)- have in eery instance given Increased In-creased yields by transplanting, however, how-ever, but the gam is less than with some of the early atid late sorts.
