Storing is prohibited as it will lead to further increase in price.

Here are a few storage pointers:

Don't wash your onions before storing them.
You probably can't store all your onions. Use up the immature, soft and big-necked ones first, and store just the mature and thoroughly cured bulbs. Hanging them in mesh bags (sorted by size) is a good way to store them in a root cellar.
Onions will keep best at temperatures between 32° F and 40° F, and the closer to 32° F the better. The temperature in a root cellar is usually a little higher. That's okay - root cellar temperature is a compromise anyway. (You can't please all the vegetables.)
The humidity should be low, too, to slow down root development and the spread of rot organisms. Good ventilation is also important.
It's not necessary to have a root cellar to store onions. If you follow the basics of onion storage, you'll have satisfactory results.

Onions should be kept in cool, dark, and dry conditions.
The ideal temperature would be somewhere between 40 and 50 degrees.
A good place for storing onions is in a root cellar or dark corner of the garage.
