Abstract A field experiment entitled ‘Effect of vermicompost, sulphur and micronutrients on growth, yield and quality of garlic (Allium sativumL.) var. G-282’ was conducted during the rabi season in 2012-13 at the Department of Vegetable Science, College of Horticulture & Forestry, Jhalawar. The experiment consisted of eighteen treatment combinations with three levels of vermicompost (control, 10 and 15 t ha-1), two levels of elemental sulphur (control, and 25kg ha-1) and three levels of micronutrients (control, ZnSO4 @ 0.4% and Boric acid @ 0.2%) in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. The application of vermicompost, sulphur and micronutrients under the individual effect of 15 t ha-1 vermicompost, 25 kg ha-1 sulphur and ZnSO4 @ 0.4% exhibited maximum plant height, number of leaves per plant, leaf length, neck thickness, chlorophyll content of leaves, fresh weight of bulb, diameter of bulb, number of cloves per bulb, clove length, fresh weight of 50 cloves, dry weight of 50 cloves, bulb yield per plot, bulb yield per hectare, TSS, ascorbic acid content, dry matter content, nitrogen, crude protein, sulphur and pungency in bulb, as well as the, available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content in soil after harvest of garlic. The interaction application of 15 t ha-1 vermicompost along with 25 kg ha-1 sulphur and ZnSO4 @ 0.4% was found significantly superior with respect to fresh weight of bulb(32.55g), bulb yield (216.75 q/ha) and net returns of garlic (Rs 352749 ha-1).
