Key words: Garlic, planting density, growth and yield, quality.
The studies on effect of planting density on growth, yield and quality of garlic was conducted at the Farm, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Poonch Rawalakot, during the year 2014-15. Bulbs of Desi garlic (Baghi) was collected locally from the grower of Rawalakot. There were fifteen treatments with three replications. The treatments were based on plant to plant distance of 3, 5, 7, 9 and11cm with row to row distance of 12, 14 and 16cm. The experiment was laid out according to randomized complete block design (RCBD) with two factor factorial. Data statistically analyzed and mean significant difference compared through LSD test. Plant spacing 5cm and 11 cm show significant result for leaf area, leaf length, plant height, bulb size, bulb fresh weight, bulb dry weight, number of cloves bulb-1 and yield ha-1. As compare to other treatment row spacing of 14 cm gave more leaf area, leaf length, bulb size, bulb fresh weight, bulb dry weight, number of cloves bulb-1and yield ha-1. Growth, yield and quality of garlic affected by planting density, plant spacing of 5 cm and 11 cm and row spacing of 14 cm proved optimum.
