“Genotypic and environmental effects on the compounds associated with garlic flavor, health-enhancing properties, and postharvest conservation” with Dr. Pablo Cavagnaro.
Garlic is a widely consumed species used for culinary as well as therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Different compounds within garlic can affect its effectiveness for these purposes, which are also driving factors for the market value. These compounds' availability in the garlic bulbs along with the dry (solid) matter of garlic are affected by environmental factors, which ultimately affect the farmer’s income. How does the environment affect garlic’s quality? What is the suitable environment for producing high quality garlic? Which quality factors are more sensitive and less sensitive to environmental factors? In this episode, Dr. Cavagnaro discusses his work studying genotypic and environmental effects on garlic quality factors, identifying the genes responsible for quality factors, and developing better cultivars for garlic producing locations.
