dc.description.abstract This experiment was conducted at the Experimental Farm of the Facultyof Agricultural Science, University of Gezira (latitude 〖14〗^(0 ) 〖25〗^' 39.43" N,〖 longitude 33〗^(0 ) 29' 21.39" E) to investigate the possibility of direct seeding of onion on raised beds of the Gezira clay soil. Four main direct seeding methods of onion were tested, using a pneumatic precision planter and compared with the traditional transplanting method. The treatments were seeding at 4km/hr (S4) with covering device, seeding at 4km/hr without covering device, seeding at 7km/hr (S7) with covering device, planting at 7km/hr without covering device and control (transplanting). A randomized complete block design (RCBD) was used with four replications. Results showed that onion seeds could be directly sown by the pneumatic precision planter on raised beds using 7km/hr speed. Although all the methods gave plant population far below the recommended, no significant differences were found among treatments. With regard to bulb diameter, yield and number of bulbs, the direct seeding methods gave the best results compared with the conventional method. Plant population was not significantly different between the conventional method and S7 treatment. en_US
