It would take a lot of time to cover onion grwing in New Guinea. I suggest you Google 'onion growing in New Guinea as there is some quite good articles. Bulb onions grow well in the lowland areas but fungal problems are a consideratio everywhere. These articles may give you some clues as to what varieties to grow. Trust this helps.
