Integrated pest management

Onion farmers in New Zealand use integrated pest management practices to control pests and diseases. This means growers apply best practice to manage pest and disease issues, including the use of crop rotation, crop scouting, and disease risk models to apply the best control measures.

Soil Health

Soil health is crucial to sustainable farming, and onion farmers in New Zealand are adopting practices that promote soil health, such as cover cropping, reduced tillage, and organic matter additions.

Waste Reduction

Onion farmers in New Zealand are working to reduce waste by using every part of the onion, from the bulbs to the skins and even the leaves. We’re looking at ways onion waste can be used as animal feed or value-added products, allowing for better use of resources and minimising the industry's impact on the environment.

Rotational Crop

Onions are grown in rotation with other crops meaning pest and disease pressure is reduced overall (and less resources used for disease control). Rotational crops support a healthier New Zealand with better quality vegetables. 

Harvesting

Once the onion bulbs are ready for harvest, the green tops and the roots of the onion plant are cut either mechanically or by hand clipping for early onions. During this process the onion bulbs are lifted from the soil and laid in rows on top of the bed to dry in the sun, this creates the dry skins that protect the onion - meaning better storage and less chance of disease. Our growers prefer a natural, more sustainable, outdoor drying process as it provides a better quality end product. We harness the power of the sun, to prepare our onions for market.

Ambient Storage

Storage in farm sheds and centralised packhouses ensure New Zealand grown onions minimise the use of electricity in the supply chain. 

Long Storage life

New Zealand grown onions are known for their long shelf life, which ensures they travel well to export markets, and store well in pantries all over the world. A longer shelf life ensures less fresh produce wastage.
