klappen met ong, 1950-2000 toeren om het loof goed op te zuigen.

running around 1950-200rpm to get the onions leafs sucked up

an overview
Re: First onions in Ontario?
de laatste, toch een mooi zwad uien voor 10juli, deze zijn eind april pas geplant.
dit zijn trouwens ook 2e jaars plantuien, vandaar dat we zo vroeg zijn.

the last one, a nice windrow for july 10th, these onions were planted at the end of april en grown from onion sets, thats why we're so early.
Re: First onions in Ontario?
Very nice photos Huib :-)

It is interesting to see onions topped green, before they are lifted.

Here in Tasmania, the onions are lifted & allowed to dry out prior to topping. They might sit on top of the ground after lifting for 2-3 weeks before topping (which is usually done just prior to the lifted crop being picked up with the harvesters).

Some of the harvesters have a topper on them, so the crop is basically topped as it is harvested,

Re: First onions in Ontario?
We top the onions before lifting them so we don't need to dry them in the field as long.
We dig our onions and then we'll leave them in the field for 3-4 days to dry and then we pick them up with the harvester.
After we pick them up we take them to the yardand run them over a finishing topper to take the last tops off and have a clean crop in the bin. (i'll have pics of that later on)

but yeah the main reason we top them before lifting to reduce drying time in the field.
