Abstract: An experiment was conducted on the effect of foliar application of chemicals on growth and yield of garlic (Allium sativum L.) var. GG-4 during the year 2015-16 at Regional Horticultural Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat). The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with three replications and nine treatments. Among the all treatments, the foliar application of 100 ppm citric acid + 300 ppm thiourea (T8) at 30 and 60 DAS obtained the maximum plant height at 60 and 90 DAS (43.02 cm and 59.10 cm), maximum number of leaves at 60 and 90 DAS (8.03 and 11.20) with earliest in maturity (127.28 days). However, the bulb characters like fresh weight (24.88 g) and dry or cured weight (20.19 g) of bulb, diameter of bulb (35.92 mm), number of cloves per bulb (19.67), clove weight (2.00 g), clove length (2.73 cm), yield per plot (3.52 kg/plot) and yield per ha (7.04 t/ha) was significantly influence by the foliar application of 100 ppm citric acid + 300 ppm thiourea (T8) in garlic var. GG-4.
