Monsanto has launched a new web tool to help growers choose the most suitable onion variety for their growing conditions.

Growers can access the tool through the myonion.co.uk website, set up by Seminis, Monsanto’s open-field and unheated-protected products arm.

The Onion Web Tool will recommend a variety based on on-farm variables such as soil type, disease pressure, harvest date and storage capabilities of the grower using the tool.
