Onion (Allium cepa L.) is one of the important commercial spice crop grown in India for its varied utilization in different cuisines. Odisha produces less than 20% of its consumption needs and for the rest it has to depend on imports from other states. The production and productivity of onion mainly depends upon its genotype, edaphic and climatological factors. Due to high domestic need in Bhadrak district which can’t be augmented due to non-availability of high yielding varieties particularly in late kharif season. Hence, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bhadrak, Ranital (OUAT) conducted an On Farm Testing (OFT) for late kharif during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17 season on farmers field of the villages viz. Kunarda, Shologaon, Rajualibindha, Miriga and Baranga to evaluate the field efficacy of the late kharif varieties. From the on farm testing it was revealed that the onion variety performed better in yield as well as in growth parameters in compared to the N-53 and Agrifound dark red. The consumer preference was more in case of Bhima Super variety for its high shelf-life and fetches higher price in the market. Bhima Super variety registered 43.21% increased yield over Agri found Dark Red variety.
