Ten garlic genotypes of released varieties and local cultivar were evaluated during the period May to September 2017 at farmer’s fields in two locations of Kanthalloor panchayat of Idukki district. The results showed that the genotypes differed significantly in both yield and quality aspects. The local cultivar and Yamuna safed-3 recorded highest equatorial diameter and bulb weight. The number of cloves per bulb was as high as 16 in AAS-2. The genotype Yamuna safed-3 recorded a highest yield of 1.19Kg/2m2 followed by local cultivar and Ooty-1 (0.90Kg/2m2 and 0.89Kg/2m2 respectively). While considering both yield and quality aspects in trade, local cultivar, Yamuna Safed-3 and Ooty-1 were found to be the promising genotypes.
