• This project tested the effect on
over-wintered garlic yield of planting
date and two mulching strategies:
companion-seeded oat cover crop vs.
straw mulch.
• Farmer-cooperator Mark Quee planted
garlic in September with a companion
oat cover crop (oat residue following
winterkill intended to serve as mulch).
Garlic planted in October was mulched
with straw.
Key Findings
• September-planted garlic had higher
yield than October-planted, but pervasive
rot in several areas of the field
may have impacted results.

RESEARCH REPORT

Objectives: 1. Determine if planting oats as a winterkill mulch impacts overwintered garlic yield. 2. Determine if an earlier planting date (so that oats and garlic can be sown together with significant growth on the oats before winterkill) impacts overwintered garlic yield. 3. Evaluate percent cover, biomass, and weed suppression of oat cover crop planted with garlic in September.
