Land Configuration and Varietal Effects on Yield Contributing Traits and Yield of Garlic

Md. Shahidul Haque, Md. Abdus Sattar and M. Habibur Rahman Pramanik

Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to study the effects of ridge, furrow and flat planting methods on performance of three cultivars of garlic. Plant height was significantly affected and plants on ridges had the maximum height. Individual bulb weight, bulb diameter and 100 cloves weight were significantly higher in ridge method compared with other two methods. While, the number of cloves per bulb was higher in furrow method. The higher individual bulb weight, bulb diameter and 100 cloves weight of the plants grown in ridges gave a corresponding higher yield of garlic. Among the cultivars, cv. Faridpur had significantly higher individual bulb weight, bulb diameter, 100 cloves weight and a corresponding higher yield. However, it had few cloves per bulb compared with other two cultivars. Planting in ridges has potential application for the yield improvement of garlic.
