|Abstract:||An experiment was conducted under ambient conditions to study the effects of two storage methods on the chemical composition of garlic bulbs of four cultivars stored upto 135 days after the April harvest of 1995. The cultivars selected for the present study were*. Godawari, Jamnagar, Rahuri Local and Sweta. Garlic bulbs of the fresh harvest were stored on farm with tops by hanging and with tops on ground in bundles in a well ventilated room. The moisture content in the garlic xlv Abstract Contd....

The results further revealed that there was a gr*»«*er it, ' – XV Abstract Contd.... ore K.M. cultivars, measured by difference,did not change significantly during the storage upto 135 days by both the methods. The sulphur content, however, increased in the garlic bulbs of all the four cultivars during storage upto 135 days, the increase being more in the bulbs stored on ground than in the bulbs stored by hanging method. Based on the results obtained in the present investigation, it can be oncluded that the above-mentioned four garlic cultivars can be stored better even at the ambient temperature with tops by hanging in a well ventilated room than with tops on the ground in bundles.|
