Abstract:
An improved scheme employing inflorescence meristem culture for propagation of virus-free garlic was proposed. With this method, it takes only 4 years for the bolting-type and 5 years, for the non-bolting type garlic from meristem culture to the release of elite seed garlic. Based on an economic analysis, a net profits ranging from 59.3 % to 164.5 % for the non-bolting type and from 129.1 % to 244.5 % for the bolting types were obtained by garlic seed producers.
