Abstract:

An experiment entitled “Performance of different gladiolus cultivars on growth, flowering and corm production under Chhattisgarh plains agroclimatics zone condition” was carried out in Horticulture Research Farm at the Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, IGKV, Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India. The experiment was laid out in simple Randomized Block Design with three replication. Healthy corms of fourteen gladiolus cultivars were planted during October 2016-17. Among cultivars Punjab Dawn (8.67) taken minimum number of days to 50% sprouting. The observation on plant height, number of leaves plant-1, length of leaves and width of leaves was recorded at 20, 40, 60 days after planting. Maximum plant height at 20 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (49.11 cm), while, minimum height was recorded cv. Dull Queen (30.34 cm). Maximum plant height at 40 days was recorded in cv. Summer Sunshine (72.31 cm). While, minimum height was recorded cv. Dull Queen (43.37 cm) and Maximum plant height at 60 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (100.21 cm). While, minimum height was recorded cv. Dull Queen (53.70 cm). Maximum number of leaves plant-1 at 20 days was recorded in cv. GS-2 (3.57). While, minimum number of leaves plant-1 was recorded cv. Her Majesty (2.40). Maximum number of leaves plant-1 at 40 days was recorded in cv. Gujan (6.07). While, minimum number of leaves plant-1 was recorded cv. Nova Lux (4.17) and Maximum number of leaves plant-1 at 60 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (8.03). While, minimum number of leaves plant-1 was recorded cv. Dull Queen (6.03). Maximum length of leaves at 20 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (25.67 cm). While, minimum length of leaves was recorded cv. Dull Queen (17.63 cm). Maximum length of leaves at 40 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (38.29 cm). While, minimum length of leaves was recorded cv. Dull Queen (26.61 cm) and Maximum length of leaves at 60 days was recorded in cv. White Prosperity (47.70 cm). While, minimum length of leaves was recorded cv. American Beauty (37.14 cm). Maximum width of leaves at 20 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (1.92 cm). While, minimum width of leaves was recorded cv. American Beauty (1.09 cm). Maximum width of leaves at 40 days was recorded in cv. Candyman (2.38 cm). While, minimum width of leaves was recorded cv. Her Majesty (1.22 cm) and Maximum width of leaves at 60 days was recorded in cv. White Prosperity (2.81 cm). While, minimum width of leaves was recorded cv. Dull Queen ((1.74 cm). Maximum number of corms plant-1 was recorded in cv. Advantage (4.69). however, Diameter and weight of corms plant-1 was found maximum in cv. Candyman. Number and weight of cormels was observed maximum in cv. White Prosperity.
