Abstract:

Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is a sterile diploid species, which do not flower and hence forms no seeds. Thus, it is asexually propagated by vegetative means of cloves, due to vegetative propagation of garlic is lead to infect by the several viruses, which are together called as garlic viral complex (GVC). The viruses go on accumulating in planting seed material due to continuous use of same source of viruses–infected true garlic seed (TGS) propagules year after year namely garlic cloves. GVC is the most important factor for lower yield of garlic in tropics. Thus, production of virus–free garlic seed is an important agricultural input to improve the yield of garlic. In this paper we review status and prospects of research in the area of virus–free garlic seed production.


Keywords: GVC, TGS, Virus-free garlic, Yield.
