Abstract:

The present investigation entitled, “Suitability of Cut Corms as Planting Material on Flowering, Corm and Cormel Production in Gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.) Varieties” was under taken in the Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad during Rabi season (2016-2017). The experiment was layout in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with 12 treatments and each treatment replicated thrice. The treatments consist of different division of corms (Full, Half and one- third) and 4 varieties (Deepest Red, Jessica, Amsterdam and Esta Bonita). Early spike emergence (55.27) was found when full corm was planted for Jessica Variety whereas spike length was maximum (94.00cm) in variety Esta Bonita. Regarding number of florets per spike (14.83), number of daughter corms (65.16) per plant was found to be best in variety Amsterdam when full corms were planted whereas number of cormels (59.57) was found to be maximum in variety Deepest Red.
