A spice crop called garlic is used in food as well as in the treatment of ᴍᴀɴy issues. In the majority of the states in our nation, garlic is cultivated. However, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Tamil Nadu are the main states where it is grown. Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh produce more than half of all of it. The area and productivity of the garlic output have been rising over time.
For this crop, loam soil is said to be extremely favorable. From sandy loam to clay soils, it can be grown. The ideal soil for this crop is said to have a healthy balance of carbonic material, drainage, and drainage. Its tubers cannot develop in sand or other loose soil, which results in a limited yield. For producing garlic, the pH of the soil needs to be between 6.0 and 5.7. Garlic requires more nitrogen than most farmers realize, mostly during its initial growth period as it spreads its leaves.
Nitrogen can be added to the soil by adding organic ᴍᴀɴures, such as cow and chicken dung. Garlic’s roots need phosphorus to develop at its best. Sulfur is required for special flavors and healing. After the plants have sprouted and started to leaf out in the spring, sprinkle gypsum over your beds to add sulfur. High levels of ᴍᴀɴure and fertilizers are required for garlic. So, after carefully inspecting the soil, it is deemed appropriate to use any ᴍᴀɴure and fertilizer. You can include organic dung like cow, poultry, and horse ᴍᴀɴure.
In the northern Iɴᴅɪᴀn plains, October through November is the ideal month to increase yield. It should be sown in the months of March and April in hilly locations. After planting the garlic, the first irrigation should be done right away. After that, water the crop after ten to fifteen days. During the month of summer, water it once a week. Irrigate the crop appropriately while the crop is developing its flakes. ᴍᴀɴy factors affect the garlic crop’s production. mostly because of the variety, soil fertility, and crop care. Additionally, cultivars with long days produce bigger yields. The yield is from 100 to 200 quintals per acre.
In 135–150 days after being sowed, the crop is ready. When half of the crop’s leaves begin to dry out and turn yellow, the crop can be harvested. At least 15 days before cutting, stop irrigation. Plants are dug up or uprooted from the ground, rope-tied into little bundles, and stored in the field in the shade for a couple of days. After thorough drying, dry stalks are removed, bulbs are properly cleaned, and then they are sorted and rated based on size.
