- ... Losses of onion are caused by spoilage from microbial infection, sprouting and mass loss. Pre-harvest factors such as cultivar, climate and growing conditions, as well as harvesting, curing, storage duration, temperature and relative humidity during storage, influence losses. The optimal storage conditions for onions are 0°C and 65‑75% relative humidity (RH); however, it is costly to store onions ...
