Abstract:

Fourteen varieties of gladiolus (Gladiolus hybridus Hort.) were evaluated for various vegetative and floral paramenters under Bundelkhand conditions of Uttar Pradesh during the years 2017-18 and 2018-19. Minimum days to spike initiation were recorded in variety Jester (90.50 days) and variety White Prosperity took maximum days (108.05 days) for spike initiation. Plant height and spike length was recorded maximum in variety White Prosperity (124.25 cm and 110.65 cm) however, minimum plant height was recorded in variety Punjab Morning (84.22 cm), and minimum spike length was observed in variety Red White (65.07 cm). Maximum duration of flowering was exhibited by variety Willas Pink (18.61 days). However, minimum duration of flowering (13.28 days) was recorded in variety Peter Pears. Number of florets per spike was found maximum in cv. Willas Pink (19.95) and minimum number of florets per spike was found in cv. Red White (10.56). Maximum floret size was recorded by Willas Pink (9.66 cm) and minimum floret size was recorded in White prosperity (8.27 cm). Maximum vase life was recorded in cv. Black Star (10.22 days) and minimum in White Prosperity (6.95 days).
