Abstract:

The experiment was conducted on PG 17 variety of garlic at the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kapurthala farm during 2016-17. The cloves were planted both on beds and ridges at a spacing of 15 cm x 7.5 cm and 12.5 cm x 12.5 cm in a 25 sqm plot for each treatment in RBD with 3 replications. Ten bulbs were selected randomly from each treatment. Significant differences were observed for number of clover, bulb diameter, fresh weight and dry weight. All the parameters gave better results in bed sowing irrespective of spacing. The garlic yield in bed sowing was comparatively less as compared to flat sowing but the bulb diameter was significantly higher in bed sowing, which in turn results in 30-40 per cent higher market price.
