Onions, New York, Etc…

Missed this in March of 2003:

Crop Profile: Onions in New York

It's interesting to see all the reactions to this specific crop of onions, particularly all the varied diseases and infestations it's been encountering (onion maggots, onion thrips, bulb mites, cut worms, Botrytis Leaf Blight, smut, etc…).

I actually like New York onions a lot, don't think they’re "pungent yellow globes" at all, and I'm pretty curious to see more effective controls for bulb mites and bacterial diseases.
