Abstract

Two types of fungicides and their mixture viz. Rovral, Ridomil and Rovral+Ridomil along with five combinations of different fertilizers were tested to find the best integrated package method for successful garlic production. The highest fertilizer dose especially nitrogenous fertilizer F5 (200, 166, 200, 20 and 1000 kg N, P2O5, K2O, S and Cow dung ha–1) produced the highest bulb yield of garlic (6.36 and 7.89 t ha–1 during 1997 and 1998 respectively), which was statistically similar with the yield of F4 (6.28 and 7.57 t ha–1 during 1997 and 1998 respectively) where 150, 166, 200, 20 and 1000 kg N, P2O5, K2O, S and CD ha–1 were applied. The mixed application of Rovral and Ridomil was better in case of garlic bulb yield (6.44 and 7.79 t ha–1 in 1997 and 1998 respectively). The incidence of purple blotch was significantly reduced (1.6 and 1.7 score in 1997 and 1998 respectively) by mixed application fungicide. The interaction between fertilizer and fungicide had no significant effect on garlic yield.
