Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of forty-nine chrysanthemum genotypes for desirable horticultural traits at ICAR-Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Hesaraghatta Lake Post, Bengaluru from 2015-17. Significant variations were observed for various vegetative and flowering traits during both years. The results from the pooled data of two years showed that among the genotypes evaluated, maximum plant height was recorded in Arka Chandrakant (69.59 cm), maximum flower diameter in Arka Ravikiran (9.00 cm) and maximum weight of 100 flowers in Marigold (925.04 g). The genotype Roopanjali produced maximum number of flowers per plant (1199.17). Pusa Anmol recorded the minimum number of days to first flowering (60.48 days) while Roopanjali the longest period to first flowering (201.56 days). The genotypes with superior vegetative and floral traits desirable for the different segments of the floriculture industry like loose flower, cut flower and pot plant trade can be utilized in further improvement of chrysanthemum.
