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… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Agro-morphological markers and organo-sulphur compounds to assess diversity in Tunisian garlic landraces
TLDR
Study of diversity of 31 garlic landraces from Tunisia and structuring this diversity helped at establishing correlations between content of organo-sulphur compounds and agro-morphological characteristics. Expand
Garlic Biodiversity and Genetic Resources
TLDR
Biochemical and molecular studies suggest that the highest level of heterogeneity occurs within the Central Asian gene pool, which may contain genes of interest for future use in genetic studies, as well as for plant improvement programs. Expand
Unlocking variability: inherent variation and developmental traits of garlic plants originated from sexual reproduction
TLDR
A nucleotide binding site profiling marker technology was applied to provide conclusive evidence for the cross-pollination nature of garlic, and to compare the levels of polymorphism between progeny derived from a single mother clone fertilized by several pollinators. Expand
Characteristics of chemical components in genetic resources of garlic Allium sativum collected from all over the world
TLDR
It was suggested that garlic’s transition of from sexual propagation to asexual (vegetative) propagation and changes in the chemical composition of the bulbs would have occurred in the process of expanding garlic cultivation and obtained high environmental adaptability with these transitions and changes via artificial selection. Expand
Garlic Cultivation for High Health-Value
TLDR
Experiments performed under fully controlled conditions showed that sulfur fertilisation as well as light conditions could also have an impact on the organosulfur composition of garlic bulbs, however, the interaction with the genotype has to be considered as spring-variety and winter-varieties did not react the same way to variations in fertilising and environmental conditions. Expand
Male gametogenesis and sterility in garlic (Allium sativum L.): barriers on the way to fertilization and seed production
TLDR
The present report provides first detailed description of the development of male gametophytes in 11 garlic genotypes varying in their fertility traits, and reveals significant differences between fertile and sterile genotypes, as well as between developmental stages of microsporogenesis. Expand
Breeding and Genomic Approaches for Climate-Resilient Garlic
TLDR
Various approaches and what has been done in these areas in different parts of the world to address the loss in crop yield which is likely to be caused by the biotic and abiotic stresses in the future are discussed. Expand
Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure in a garlic (Allium sativum L.) germplasm collection varying in bulb content of pyruvate, phenolics, and solids
TLDR
This study characterized genetic diversity in the Argentine garlic germplasm bank by analysis of 10 SSR loci in 73 garlic accessions and found a relatively high level of genetic redundancy in this garlic collection. Expand
Effect of long photoperiod on the reproductive and bulbing processes in garlic (Allium sativum L.) genotypes
TLDR
Florogenesis in garlic can be promoted by exposure to proper environmental stimuli, during pre-planting storage and sprouting to the later growth stages, and in some clones the treatment enhances florogenesis, flower stalk elongation and bulbing. Expand
Comparing costs for different conservation strategies of garlic (Allium sativum L.) germplasm in genebanks
TLDR
Studies were performed for the case of garlic, which is one of the major vegetatively maintained crops in the genebank of IPK Gatersleben, and a spreadsheet tool was developed to be used for cost assessment and for drawing conclusions concerning the most effective way of maintenance. Expand

Garlic (Allium sativum L.) and its wild relatives from Central Asia: evaluation for fertility potential
TLDR
Further studies of flowering physiology and fertility restoration, should focus on bolting genotypes which produce inflorescences with a high ratio of normal flowers to topsets, and the size, number and rapidity of topset development varies significantly between genotypes. Expand
Floral development in bolting garlic
TLDR
For further studies of flowering physiology and fertility restoration, only clones which can differentiate the greatest proportion of normal flowers and the least of topsets in the apical meristem should be selected. Expand
Infraspecific differentiation of garlic (Allium sativum L.) by isozyme and RAPD markers
TLDR
An infraspecific classification of garlic with four major groups is proposed, using isozyme and RAPD markers to analyze and structure a collection of 300 accessions, many of which were gathered in Middle Asia close to the assumed center of origin. Expand
Environmental Control of Garlic Growth and Florogenesis
TLDR
It is concluded that in bolting garlic genotypes, manipulation of the environment, both before and after planting, can regulate the development of fl owers and regain fertility. Expand
Fertile Clones of Garlic(Allium sativum L.) Abundant around the Tien Shan Mountains.
TLDR
Garlic (A. sativum L.) clones were collected around the Tien Shan Mountains of Central Asia in 1994, and regular meiosis of pollen mother cells (PMCs) was observed in all the 39 examined clones, and 31 of the 35 examined clones produced fertile pollen. Expand
Transformation and regeneration of garlic (Allium sativum L.) by Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer
TLDR
The temperature and number of days of co-cultivation with Agrobacterium tumefaciens was shown to be an important factor in transient expression of the uid A gene. Expand
Characterization and classification of isozyme and morphological variation in a diverse collection of garlic clones
TLDR
In this study, isozyme and morphological characters were analyzed for 110 diverse clones of garlic and the proposed progenitor species, A. longicuspis to suggest an artificial species separation. Expand
True seed production in garlic
TLDR
Protein analysis of the seedlings confirms their snygamic origin and indicates that the generation of new recombinants through sexual reproduction could have a major impact on garlic production worldwide. Expand
Garlic Flowering in Response to Clone, Photoperiod, Growth Temperature, and Cold Storage
TLDR
The effects of cold storage, photoperiod, and growth temperature on flowering incidence in four clones of garlic were studied and the highest flowering percentage in all garlic clones was achieved by growing plants at 10C under short Photoperiod with no cold storage of bulbs before planting. Expand
Garlic and health.
TLDR
An outline is presented of a European initiative which is aimed at the development of high quality garlic and the identification of biomarkers in atherosclerosis and cancer in humans for disease prevention. Expand
