Abstract: A field study was conducted on Horticultural Research Farm of the Department of Applied Plant Sciences, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Lucknow during the year 2014-15 to study the effect of organic manures and varieties on growth, yield and quality traits of Garlic (Allium sativum L.). The sowing was done on November with a spacing of 15×10cm. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with twelve treatments replicated thrice. Result indicated that the maximum height of the plant (19.54, 38.85 and 59.91cm) and leaves/plant (4.93, 7.73 and 10.73) were recorded at 30, 60 and 90 DAS with treatment RDF + 20 tons/ha vermin-compost + Bhima Purple varieties followed by treatment RDF + 25 tons/ha press mud + Bhima Purple varieties and minimize in treatment RDF 100: 60: 50 kg/ha + Yamuna Safed-5 vareity. Bulb diameter at polar (3.01cm) and bulb diameter at equatorial (3.35cm) were recorded maximum in treatment RDF + 20 tons/ha vermi-compost + Bhima Purple varieties. The maximum clove/bulb (20.20) and bulb weight (20.95g) were recorded with treatment RDF + 20 tons/ha vermi-compost + G-282 varieties. Maximum yield/plot (1.00kg) and yield/ha (100.59 q) was recorded in treatment RDF + 20 tons/ha vermin-compost + G-282 varieties. The maximum TSS (41.16 0Brix) were recorded with treatment RDF + 20 tons/ha vermin-compost + Bhima Purple varieties and maximum ascorbic acid (12.46 mg/100g) were recorded with treatment RDF + 20 tons/ha vermi-compost + G-282 varieties.
