Effects of Natural and Synthetic Mulches on Garlic (Allium sativum L.)

Md. Shahidul Haque, Md. Rezaul Islam , M. Abdul Karim and Md. Abdul Halim Khan

Abstract:
The experiment was carried out to study the effect of natural and synthetic mulches on yield of local and exotic garlic cultivars during the period from November, 2000 to march, 2001. The results of the experiment revealed that significant variations exist among the different mulches in respect of morphological characters, yield contributing characters and yield of garlic. Water hyacinth mulch produced the tallest plant with higher number of leaves and roots per plant, higher fresh and dry weight of bulb, length of bulb and highest yield per hectare. Bulb diameter and number of cloves per bulb were higher in black polyethylene mulch. The exotic cultivar performed better than the local cultivar in respect of plant height, number of leaves and roots per plant, fresh and dry weight of bulb and yield per hectare.
