The term “biological elasticity” describes garlic’s ability to acclimate to these factors over time. No one practice is best suited for every situation. You will want to talk with local growers who have experience growing garlic and experiment with different cultural practices and varieties to discover the best combination for your operation.
Garlic (Allium sativum) has had a long and rich history as one of the oldest cultivated crops and has been a staple in many ethnic cuisines. The harvested bulbs are rich in antioxidants and beneficial compounds that are considered to impart health benefits, particularly to the cardiovascular system. Garlic is popular with small commercial growers of specialty crops because it is relatively easy to grow; fits well into a rotating harvest and multifaceted marketing system; has a long shelf life; and is highly valued by consumers.
Garlic is a great low-maintenance cash crop. Brian Fox planted 35 pounds of garlic in his garden 11 years ago. He now plants 700 pounds every October using 15 tons of hay mulch at Salem Mountain Farms in northeastern Pennsylvania. He harvests about 4,000 pounds the next summer. “I can’t imagine stopping,” he said. “It’s certainly a satisfying thing to grow. It’s one of those things we see in the spring before actual leaves start growing on trees.”
