The aim of this paper was to observe the influence of different technological factors on the growth and development of shallots (Allium ascalonicum).  We choose to study this variety due to their antioxidant, anti microbial and nutritional properties. It was set up a bifactorial experience (A factor: planting distance – with 3 graduations and factor B: irrigation method – with 2 graduations), resulting 6 experimental variants. Parameters such as plant height and leaf number on the plant were monitored for 3 months (April to June). The results were compared and we noticed that irrigation on the gutters favors the height growth of the shallot, but  do not influence the number of leaves formed on the plant. The lower the density, the higher the number of roots / plant. The irrigation has positively influenced the weight of bulbs and increased crop productivity irrespective of planting density. It is recommended to cultivate the shallots at planting distances of 25-30 cm between the rows, irrigated on gullies when atmospheric conditions are inadequate to culture.
