Abstract:

The present investigation entitled Effect of planting dates and cultivars on floral characters of gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus) under Chhattisgarh plains was Horticulture Farm, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) India during Rabi season 2011-12 and 2012-13. Having four different planting times (30th September, 15th October, 30th October, 15th November) and six gladiolus genotypes (American Beauty, White Prosperity, Candyman, Dull Queen, Her Majesty, and Red Majesty). The field experiments were laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications having 24 treatment combinations. The treatment 30th September with cultivar Dull Queen (D1V4) was showed minimum days (52.50) required for spike emergence, the longest spike (88.47cm) was recorded with the interaction of 30th September planting with cultivar Candyman (D1V3), the longest rachis (67.43 cm) was obtained in planting on 15th October with cultivar Candyman (D2V3). Planting of 30th September with American Beauty (D1V1), produced greater number of spike per plant (2.77), earlier floret opening (62.50) was recorded with the interaction of 30th September planting with cultivar Dull Queen (D1V4), maximum number of floret per spike (15.50) was recorded with the interaction of planting on 15th October with cultivar Candyman (D2V3), maximum flower diameter (11.70) was recorded with the interaction of 30th September with cultivar Red Majesty (D1V6), and the longest internodal length (5.00 cm) was noted under interaction of planting on 30th September with cultivar Candyman (D1V3).
