As a producer of hybrid onion bulbs for many years, John Rietveld Farms is the premier choice for onion producers looking for a labor-saving alternative to hand-planting onion transplants.
Let us grow your seed to optimum sized quality bulbs, suitable for mechanical planting. Our close relationship with the planter manufacturer ensures that your bulbs will be sized and graded for optimum performance and accurate spacing utilizing mechanical planting.
See our range of options with the bulb planters, or call us to discuss the planter design and configuration that would best suit your population and spacing needs.
The bulbs are harvested in July and August and stored in our facility until your desired planting time. After delivery, the bulbs can be easily maintained at the grower’s facility under forced air until weather permits planting.
