TREVISAN, Jorge Nadir; MARTINS, Gustavo Adolfo Klippel and SANTOS, Nara Rejane Zamberlan dos. Planting date and cultivar influence on the total yield of garlic (Allium sativum L.) in Santa Maria, RS. Cienc. Rural [online]. 1996, vol.26, n.1, pp. 29-32. ISSN 0103-8478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84781996000100006.
The experiment was carried out at the Federal University of Santa Maria, in southernmost Brazil, during the growing season of 1984, to determine the influence of three different planting dates (April 27, May 18 and July 14) on the yield of nine garlic, Allium sativum Z., cultivars. The experimental design was a split plot complete block, with planting dates as main plots and cultivars as subplots. Blocks were replicated four times. The highest yields were obtained with planting date May 18. Gigante Lavínia ranked first among cultivars. The outstanding performances of São Lourenço and Gigante Inconfidentes were not significantly different.
