Abstract :
A field experiment was conducted at the USDA Alliums’ Project Field Laboratory at Horticulture Farm, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, during November, 2014 to April, 2015 to study the effect of planting time on growth, development and yield performance of ten garlic genotypes. The experiment consisted of two planting time (7 November and 22 November) and ten genotypes of garlic. The genotypes used were BAU-1, BAU-2, BAU-3, BAU-4, G-29, G-30, G-32, G-33, G-35 and G-51. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. Result showed that plant height (49.99 cm), number of leaves per plant(6.78), length of leaves (30.74 cm), bulb fresh weight (23.06 g), bulb dry weight (5.94 g), bulb length (3.36 cm), bulb diameter (3.44 cm), number of cloves per bulb (22.88), bulb yield per plot (2.01 kg) and bulb yield per hectare (10.01 ton) were recorded maximum from 7 November planting. These parameters were recorded minimum in 22 November planting. It was also found that BAU-3 produced the highest bulb yield per hectare (12.20 ton) followed byG-29 (11.20ton). The lowest bulb yield per hectare (5.20 ton) was obtained from G-32.The highest bulb yield per hectare (14.30 ton) was observed in the treatment combination of planting time 1 (7 November) with BAU-3.The lowest bulb yield per hectare (4.70 ton) was observed in the treatment combination of planting time 2 (22 November)with G-32. It can be concluded that BAU-3 genotype would give better growth and higher bulb yield if it is planted by early of November.
