Abstract

Garlic (Allium sativum) is the second most widely cultivated Allium species grown in the world. But
lack of development of improved varieties remains a major bottleneck in achieving higher yield. For varietal
development programs, insufficiency of existing cultivars and genetic data are the major constraints. In the current
study field trials for 3 consecutive years (2018 to 2020) were conducted to evaluate genetic variability among four
different garlic genotypes in comparison with two newly developed advance lines. Based on 13 agro-morphological
traits, garlic genotypes were evaluated in Randomized Complete Block design (RCBD) with three replications
