This research work was conducted to evaluate the effect of foliar application of liquid earthworm humus on morphological and productive crop of garlic (Allium sativum L.) in the town of Topes de Collantes indicators. The study was conducted on a Red Leached Ferralitic in the mountains of Topes de Collantes. A completely randomized design was used, with a control and three treatments at doses 3, 6 y 9 L ha-1. The crop received agrotechnical and phytosanitary care according to established standards. At the height indicators cultivation of the plant, number of leaves per plant, pseudostem diameter and post-harvest was evaluated number of cloves per bulb, tooth weight, diameter and weight of the bulb and performance. The results showed that application of humus in either dose was superior to the control in all the indicators evaluated. The treatment with the application of 9 L ha-1 of humus had significant differences with respect to the rest of the treatments in the variables yield weight of the tooth, diameter and weight of the bulb, and agricultural yield. We recommend to perform the foliar applications of liquid humus at a rate of 9 L ha-1 in conditions similar to those of the experimental area.
