New disease hits Georgia Vidalia onion crop

SEGAZINE

Georgia is the only state that produces sweet Vidalia onions. It’s also the only state where onion farmers are tackling a new disease — yellow bud.

Yellow bud (Allium Cepa) turns onion leaves yellow, similar to a ripe banana. The plant either dies or loses the yellow color in the leaves and greens back up. While the plant looks healthy, the damage has already been done.
