Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during Rabi season 2018 at the Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, India. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. The treatments consisted of Application of different combinations of fertilizers increased the growth and yield in garlic. The maximum plant height (58.83 cm), numbers of leaves (7.47) at 120 DAP. The maximum yield plot-1 (5.63 kg), yield ha-1 (15.00 t), average fresh weight (50.88 g), average dry weight of bulb (31.88 g), equatorial diameter (7.17 cm), polar diameter (4.93 cm), average fresh weight of cloves (30.52 g), number of cloves bulb-1 (24.33), length of cloves (4.73 cm), neck thickness (4.37 cm), dry matter content (42.17 per cent) were recorded with the application of (100 per cent RDF+Vermicompost @ 6 t ha-1+ Sulphur @ 45 kg ha-1). These results suggested that the optimum production of garlic can be obtained with application of (100 per cent RDF+Vermicompost @ 6 t ha-1+ Sulphur @ 45 kg ha-1).
