Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted for improve growth, yield and quality attributes of Garlic (Allium sativum L.) var. Gujarat Garlic-3 in Southern Gujarat (India) by using foliar application of water soluble fertilizers during Rabi season 2011-12. The fertilizers viz., nitrogen (65.3 kg/ha), phosphorus (Single Superphosphate; containing 16% P2O5) and potash (50.4 Kg/ha) applied at the rate of 100%, 75% and 50% of recommended dosage fertilizers (RDF) and seven treatments of novel foliar spray formulations viz., 0.5 % polyfeed (19:19:19) and MKP (Monopotassium phosphate) (0:52:34). Among the various RDF levels, apply the garlic crop with 100% RDF (50:50:50) remained more productive and found to be optimum yield (5580 kg ha-1) and economical (B: C ratio 2.51) whereas, application of 0.5% Polyfeed (19:19:19) three sprays resulted significantly higher values of almost all the growth as well as yield attributes and bulb yield (6940 kg ha-1) as compared to other treatments and proved its superiority by B: C ratio (3.14). For achieving higher bulb yield of garlic and net profit along with sustaining soil fertility, application of 100% RDF with three foliar sprays of 0.5% polyfeed (19:19:19) seems to be more remunerative under Southern Gujarat conditions.
