High-yield garlic variety developed in Pakistan

A new garlic variety developed at the National Agricultural Research Centre (Narc) has yielded 24 tonnes per hectare — the highest ever produced in the country as compared to other garlic cultivars grown locally.
Developed variety called Narc-G1 has been recorded approximately 185.43 grams as compared to the local ‘Lehson Gulab’ which is only 35.45 grams. Narc-G1 is relatively larger than other garlic varieties while cultivation in a suitable climate and proper care can enhance its productivity.
The new variety was approved by the Pakistan Agriculture Research Council (Parc) and it was also vetted last month by the seed councils of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. According to Parc chairman Dr. Mohammad Azeem Khan, the new variety will not only increase the earnings of the farmers but also reduce the bill of garlic imports.
