Anatomical Studies on Six Cultivars of Allium sativum L. Cultivated at Mandalay Region, Lower Sagaing Region and Shan Stat
- The present studies deal with the anatomical characters of six cultivars, Allium sativum L. (garlic) known as kyetthun phyu. These cultivars were included cultivar Au tlaone khayan, Au talone phyu, cultivar Shan hmwar phyu, cultivar Shan hmwar khayan, cultivar Kyun au and cultivar Shwe pan gone. All cultivars were collected from Yat Sauk from Southern Shan State, Tagaung Sub- township located in Mandalay Region and Wetlet Township of Sagaing Region, in this year 2012-2013.The anatomical characteristic of the leaf blade were studied, described, compared and discussed. The maximum thickness of leaf blade was found in cultivar Au talone phyu. The distinct character included, multiple layers of spongy was 6-10 layers found in cultivar Shan hmwar khayan and 1-8 layers of phloem was found in Shan hmwar phyu. In this research work also observed that the anatomical characteristic of the six cultivars were found to be similar with one another in term of type of stomata and vascular bundle.
