Morphological and chemical traits of diploid and polyploid garlic plants.

Colchicine-treated plants Leaf area index Stomatal length (mm) Stomatal width (mm) Stomatal area (mm2) Total soluble sugars (g g–1 FW)
Diploid (Control) (2n = 16) 3.01 ± 0.05b 28.20 ± 0.20b 20.90 ± 0.11b 589.28 ± 1.89b 0.33 ± 0.01b
Tetraploid (4n = 32) 9.02 ± 0.49a 56.86 ± 0.26a 33.16 ± 0.09a 1,884.65 ± 9.388a 0.48 ± 0.05a
LSD (P ≤ 0.05) 1.61 5.56 3.23 20.4 0.03

Adapted from Dixit and Chaudhary (2014): The Leaf area index is calculated using a leaf area meter. Total soluble sugar concentrations (TSSC) are measured in fully-mature garlic bulbs.
