Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the growth and flowering behavior of newly evolved nineteen genotypes of chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflora Tzvelev) including cultivar ‘Surf’ as standard check for loose flower production at the Experimental Farm of Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, Dr. Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, Himachal Pradesh during the year 2016-17. Among different genotypes, maximum plant height was recorded in genotype ‘UHFSChr128’ (120.33cm). The number of stems per plant were observed maximum in ‘UHFSChr 131’ (6.67) followed by ‘UHFSChr’118’ (6.33).The cultivar ‘Surf’ took minimum number of days for visible flower bud formation (76.07 days) followed by genotypes ‘UHFSChr 111’ (95.80 days), ‘UHFSChr 123’ (96.33 days) and ‘UHFSChr 115’ (96.93 days). In contrast, genotype ‘UHFSChr129’ took maximum number of days for visible flower bud formation (123 days). Significantly lesser number of days taken for flowering was recorded in cultivar ‘Surf’ (109.13 days) whereas, genotype ‘UHFSChr129’ (154 days) took maximum days for flowering. Maximum number of flowers per plant were observed in cultivar ‘UHFSChr128’ (474.93) followed by ‘UHFSChr132’ (435.93) and ‘UHFSChr117’ (408.33) where as minimum number of flowers were observed in genotype ‘UHFSChr124’ (29.59). The duration of flowering was found maximum in genotype ‘UHFSChr111’ (34.00 days).
