Abstract:

An investigation was carried on winter annuals for their growth, flowering, flower quality and yield under hill zone of Karnataka was at Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, College of Horticulture, Mudigere, during 2019-20. The study was conducted to evaluate the mean performance for growth, flowering, flower quality, yield parameters and suitability of winter annuals as cut and loose flower by consumer preference. Among all the seasonal annuals under observation, the highest flower yield per plant and plot was observed in Chrysanthemum coronarium (432.44 g, 13.45 kg), followed by Calendula officinalis (236.28 g, 8.23 kg) and Callistephus chinensis (174.25 g, 6.19 kg). The consumer preference regarding the suitability of winter annuals under study for cut and loose flower in which the highest score for cut flower suitability among the annuals was obtained in Callistephus chinensis (5.00), Gomphrena globosa (5.00), Helichrysum bracteatum (5.00), followed by Chrysanthemum coronarium (4.76), and Calendula officinalis (4.22). The maximum score for loose flower suitability was obtained in Callistephus chinensis (5.00), Chrysanthemum coronarium (5.00), followed by Calendula officinalis (4.74), and Gomphrena globosa (4.66).
