UNIVARIATE AND MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS OF SOME GARLIC LANDRACES FOR BULBS TRAITS
The objectives of this paper were to evaluate 12 garlic landraces collected from
South-Western saline area of Timis County regarding the bulbs traits and interrelationshipÂ among them, with a view to exploiting some of these landraces directly in the crop or usingÂ these landraces in breeding program. In this region growers use mostly garlic landracesÂ with a high adaptability to specific environmental conditions, like soil salinity.
The results prove the existence of a large phenotypic diversity of bulb traits, evenÂ between landraces from the same location (Livezile, Sanmartin, Foieni) which suggestsÂ that the adaptation to specific environmental conditions have been associated with different morphological features of bulbs. The height followed by the diameter of bulbs hasÂ a significant contribution to the achievement of theirweight.
