Abstract:
Garlic (<em>Allium sativum </em>L.) is an important ingredient in daily Indian diet and various researches have proved that garlic is good for health and is beneficial in curing various health problems. It has been shown to display anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-atherosclerotic and anti-carcinogenic effects. Nine different garlic genotypes were evaluated at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Babbur Farm, Hiriyur, during the year of 2016-17 with the main objective to select the promising genotypes for yield and qualitative traits. Among nine genotypes, maximum total soluble solids was recorded in the genotype Agrifound White (40.38 %), whereas the least was recorded in Bhima Purple (32.81 %). Maximum pyruvic acid content was recorded in Yamuna Safed (27.19 µ moles per g fresh weight), while the minimum pyruvic acid content was recorded in Agrifound Parvati (21.15 µ moles per g fresh weight). The highest polar diameter (4.42 cm), equatorial diameter (3.96 cm) and average bulb weight (19.01 g) was noticed in the genotype Bhima Purple. The highest yield was recorded in the genotype Bhima Purple (8.65 t/ha) which was on par with Yamuna Safed-3 (8.59 t/ha), while the minimum yield was observed in the genotype Bhima Omkar (5.20 t/ha).
