It was a good year for onions in the Pacific Northwest Basin. But DEFENDER took it to another level with a record yield with 57 tons per acre which translates into 1,140 bags per acre. Crookham Company’s Lyndon Johnson followed this field throughout the season and you can see the strong emergence, stand and yield.
Crookham continues it’s strong line up of long day onions by adding Defender and Epic.
