  • Extending the collection of garlic (Allium sativum L.) accessions is an important means that is available for broadening the genetic variability of this cultivated plant, with regard to yield, quality, and tolerance to biotic and abiotic traits; it is also an important means for restoring fertility and flowering. In the framework of the EU project ‘Garlic and Health’, 120 garlic accessions were collected in Central Asia – the main centre of garlic diversity. Plants were documented and… CONTINUE READING
