Abstract:

Screening of 45 China aster hybrids and their parents developed by crossing in diallel mating (without reciprocals) for growth, flowering, yield and quality traits. Study revealed that all the hybrids out performed with their parents indicating high amount of heterosis present in them. The crosses viz., Local Pink × Local White and Local Violet × AAC-1 and PG Violet × ArkaPoornima were early with medium height with erect branching and stalk length (18.00, 23.50 and 32.50 cm). Same cross combinations recorded higher number of flowers per plant (71.20, 69.40, and 62.40 respectively), produced maximum number of primary branches (15.60, 14.50 and 12.60 respectively) and higher flower yield per plant (176.00, 200.50, 305.00 g) and these hybrids are suitable for cut flower purpose. The cross combinations viz. Arka Archana × AAC-1 and ArkaAadya × ArkaPoornimaare suitable for landscape gardening by witnessing more spreading habit of growth and maximum flowering duration.
