Bipin Koirala and Raja Babu Chaudhary
Garlic botanically known as Allium sativum is the second most widely used crop of genus Allium after onion (Allium cepa). It belongs to family Alliaceae. It is used as spice and condiments. The edible part of the garlic is its underground stem, which is composed of number of smaller bulbs which is known as cloves. It is a cool season crop. Cool and humid climate is required for vegetative growth and relatively dry period for bulb formation. It can be grown in variety of soil pH ranging 5-7. Garlic has been being cultivated from long time ago but the productivity is very low due to lack of better cultivation practices. So, the cultivation of Garlic under zero tillage in rice straw mulch can be one of the economical and productive method to increase the productivity and quality of garlic. The main objectives of this research was to: review the method of Garlic Cultivation under Zero Tillage in Rice Straw Mulch.
