ABSTRACT


Studies carried out in 2006-2009 dealt with the evaluation of the size and yield of winter cultivated garlic leaves (local ecotype "R") depending on reproductive material used (cloves and air bulbils) as well as cultivation locality (high unheated foil tunnel, field). Plant's height, leaf number, whole plant weight, weight of the above ground parts, total, and commercial yield were determined. Plants growing in unheated foil tunnel were the highest, while those grown on a filed – the shortest. It was found that the plant's height was the most affected by the type of reproductive material. Plants growing from cloves were taller than those from air bulbils. Number of leaves per a plant, whole plant weight, weight of the above ground parts, total, and commercial yields were characterized by similar dependencies.

Key words: garlic, Allium sativum, growing method, yielding, harvest of leaves.
