Abstract:

Present experiment was carried out to see the influence of gamma dose i.e. 2 kR and 4 kR along with untreated (control) in different varieties of tuberose at Horticulture Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi during 2016-2017. Experiment was laid down in Randomized Block Design with three replications. 4 kR dose of gamma ray does not sprout due to lethal effect. Maximum sprouting percentage was recorded with control followed by 2 kR doses of gamma irradiation. Untreated plants resulted longest leaf. Maximum leaf area was recorded with cultivar Prajwal. Maximum plant spread was registered with control followed by 2 kR. Early flowering was noticed due to gamma irradiation dose at 2 kR which was significantly earlier than control. Control plants produced more rachis length in comparison to 2 kR doses of gamma irradiation. Maximum internodal length was registered with control which was significantly more than 2 kR. Maximum length of florets was registered with control. Maximum duration of flowering was noticed in control which was significantly more than 2 kR. Maximum number of spikes per plant was recorded in Sikkim Selection. Maximum number of bulbs per hill was recorded in Sikkim Selection. Maximum weight of bulbs per hill was registered with control which was significantly more than 2 kR. Maximum diameter of bulb was noticed in control in comparison to 2 kR.
