Abstract:

A field investigation on suitability assessment of tuberose varieties for growth and flower yield characters was carried out at five different farmers’ fields at Valangaiman block of Thiruvarur district during the year 2012-14. The trial was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three varieties (Prajwal, Phule Rajini and local check) with five replications. The observation on growth, flower yield and cost benefit ratio were recorded and analysed statistically. The experimental results revealed that the highest plant height (63.8cm), number leaves per plant (45.3), plant coverage (612.4 cm2), spike length (87.3), rachis length (40.2cm), florets per spike (55.6), floret length (5.6cm), floret diameter (4.2cm), weight of floret (1.5g), number spikes per plant (2.9), number of bulbs per plant (17.2), bulb weight (12.3g), bulb diameter (1.9cm) and yield per hectare (15.2 t/ha)) were recorded in Prajwal followed Phule Rajini. In the studied area Prajwal took 92 days for first flowering against 123.6 days i local check. Regarding the economics of cultivation, the variety Prajwal recorded higher gross income (Rs.3,04,000/ha), net income (Rs.1,7,3000/ha) and benefit cost ration (3.5). Based on the performance it is concluded that, prajwal variety is ideally suitable for commercial cultivation under Thiruvarur condition.
