Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Studies on the effect of macro and micro nutrients on yield and quality of garlic (Allium sativum L.)” was conducted during rabi season of 2015-16 at Horticultural Research and Training Station and KVK, Kandaghat of Dr Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan. Ten combinations of different macro and micro nutrients were replicated thrice in the form of ten treatments in a plot having dimensions of 2.0 x 2.0 m. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications involving a spacing of 20 x 10 cm. The cloves of garlic variety ‘Kandaghat Selection’ were sown on 1st October, 2015. The data were recorded on plant height (cm), number of leaves per plant, days to harvest, bulb weight (g), bulb diameter (cm), number of bulbs per kg, bulb yield per plot (kg) and per hectare (q), clove diameter (cm), number of cloves per bulb. The results revealed that application of 125% of recommended dose of NPK + Zn @ 7.5kg/ha produced best results in terms of characters like plant height (cm), number of leaves per plant, bulb weight (g), bulb diameter (cm), weight of 100 unpeeled and peeled cloves (g), bulb yield per plot (kg) and per hectare (q), clove diameter (cm), number of cloves per bulb.
