About DOGR:

Onion and garlic are the world famous spice commodities, used for flavoring the dishes. Besides culinary purposes, these are considered as valuable medicinal items. The fungicidal and insecticidal properties of garlic are well identified. Dehydrated powder & flakes, and paste prepared out of onion and garlic provide rich agro-industrial base for these commodities. India ranks second in area (9.59 lakh ha) and production (163.09 lakh tonnes) of onion and in case of garlic, also second in area (2.02 Lakh Ha) and production (11.50 Lakh tonnes), next to China (FAO STAT, 2015). Besides meeting domestic requirements, India exports 13.0 to 15.0 lakh tonnes of onion worth Rs. 3000 crores (APEDA Website, 2014). Over last 25 years the production of onion has increased from 25.04 to 163.09 lakh tonnes, while that of garlic from 2.16 to 11.50 lakh tonnes. The horizontal growth in area has contributed to total production rather than vertical growth per unit area. The productivity of both, onion (17.01 t/ha) and garlic (5.69 t/ha) is far low as compared to Netherlands, USA and China (FAO STAT, 2015).Poor yielding short day genotypes, susceptibility of all available genotypes to major pests and diseases and improper or inadequate use of production technologies lower down the productivity.
