Author(s): TD Mishra and Balaji Vikram
Abstract: The present experiment was conducted at the Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad during the winter (Rabi) season to critically evaluate eighteen varieties for future breeding programme in garlic in growth and yielding character. The 100% germination was recorded in Variety Yamuna Safed–1 (G-1), Yamuna Safed–3 (G-282), Yamuna Safed–2 (G-50), Yamuna Safed–4 (G-323) and lowest recorded Madrasi Local. The earliest germination was recorded in Yamuna Safed–3 (G-282) whereas; Madrasi Local variety took maximum time for germination. Yamuna Safed–3 (G-282) recorded maximum plant height and number of leaf sheaths per plant at all the successive stages of growth and the minimum was found with Madrasi Local variety. Minimum incidence of insect, pests and diseases percentage was recorded in Yamuna Safed–3 (G-282) while the maximum was recorded with Madrasi Local variety. Maximum fresh weight of bulb, number of cloves per bulb, length, width and weight of individual cloves, and bulb yield per hectare was recorded with Yamuna Safed–3 (G-282) and the minimum remained with Madrasi Local variety.
