Performance Evaluation of Some Garlic Genotypes in Bangladesh
S. Akter Tania,
Twenty two garlic genotypes of local and exotic origin was trailed during the period from November 27, 2000 to March 31, 2001 at SRC Bogra. The results indicated that the germplasm differed significantly as to the different morphological attributes, yield and other desirable traits. The height of plants varied from 42. 50-67. 33 cm whereas, there was no difference as to the number of leaves/plant. Length and width of individual bulb differed from 2.40-3.20 and 2.10-2.71 cm, respectively. The number of cloves/bulb and individual bulb weight were also varied significantly. The entries showed variable degree of pungency. Per hectare yield (t) of garlic genotypes varied from 2.18-6.29, being lowest in GC003 and highest in GC007. Considering pungency as a positive trait of selection and yield potentiality also with other parameters, the lines GC002, GC006, GC007, GC010, GC011, GC016, GC017 and GC021 were found promising.
