Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to study the relative performance of the five single type cultivars for semi-arid tropic condition similar to Tiruchirappali, Tamilnadu. A total of five tuberose genotypes via., Calcutta single, Hyderabad single, Phule Rajani, Prajwal and Shringar were evaluated for vegetative growth, flowering and yield in a randomized complete block design with four replications. Prajwal recorded the highest plant height (108.75 cm), earliest in days for spike emergence (80 days), number of spike per plant (4.57), maximum number of florets per spike (48.00) and maximum single flower weight (1.59 g). Prajwal and Shringar recorded maximum yield per plant (99.00 g and 95.85) as well as maximum yield per hectare (11.00 t/ha and 10.65 t/ha) respectively. From this experiment, we can conclude that, Prajwal and Shringar cultivars yields comparatively more under semi-arid tropic condition similar to Tiruchirappalli, Tamilnadu.
