An experiment was conducted to find the response of three cultivars and three bulb set grades on yield and related characters in onion. Maximum bulb weight was recorded from variety N-53. Also A grade sets produced bulbs with maximum size and weight. N-53 x A grade bulb sets was key combination for maximum bulb size & weight. Variety PB-48 produced maximum yield with tops where as maximum yield without tops was produced by variety N-53. Variety N-53 also produced bulbs with higher average weight and with maximum size, whereas variety PB-48 produced bulbs with lowest weight and with minimum size. The lower bulb yield in PB-48 can be attributed to the increase in top production at the expense of underground bulb and vice versa in case of variety N-53.
