Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi during the year 2015-16. Eight genotypes namely Shringar, Prajwal, Suvasini, Pearl Double, Calcutta Single, Mexican Single, Vaibhav and Arka Nirantara were used for the evaluation study. All the genotypes registered significant effect on yield and quality parameters. However, spike yield per hectare (2.97 lakhs), spike length (103.27 cm), flower yield per hectare (19.97 t), number of bulbs per plant (9.61), maximum corolla length (3.06 cm), vase life (9.02 days) and shelf life (6.26 days) were recorded maximum in genotype Prajwal. Rachis length (34.27 cm) and weight of 100 flowers (216.30 g) were recorded maximum in the genotype Vaibhav. Flower diameter (6.04 cm), bulb yield per hectare (2.13 t/ha) and overall acceptability was recorded maximum in genotype Suvasini, whereas genotype Shringar produced maximum number florets per spike (47.27). Maximum corolla tube length (4.48 cm) was observed in genotype Mexican Single.
