The investigation was undertaken with a view to determine the “Response of Garlic (Allium sativum L.) to Organic Manures and Fertilizers” The results were revealed that the application of different treatments influenced the growth, yield and quality attributes of garlic. Among the different treatments, application of RDF 50% + FYM (120 q ha.-1) (T7) recorded maximum plant height at 90 DAP (65.52 cm), number of leaves per plant at 90 DAP (8.06), harvest index (86.88%), bulb weight (30.93 g), bulb diameter (4.82 cm), yield per plot (10.45 kg), clove weight (1.81 g), clove diameter (12.29 mm), clove length (3.24 cm), TSS (43.13 oBrix), chlorophyll content of leaves (0.76 mg/gm/fresh wt.), sulphur content (1.36%), dry matter content (46.34%), ascorbic acid (13.88 mg/100gm) and crude protein content (18.95%) then rest of the treatments. Similarly, the neck thickness at 90 DAP (0.79 cm), the number of cloves per bulb (17.06) and number of bulb per kg (32.33) were also reduced with the application 50 per cent recommended dose of NPK + FYM 120 q ha-1 as compared to other treatments. As far as economics is concerned, maximum net return of 362625 ` ha-1 and benefit cost ratio 4.97 was also recorded by the application of RDF 50% + FYM (120 q ha-1) (T7).

Keywords: RDF, FYM, DAP, Crude protein, Yield.
