Abstract:

Twenty varieties of chrysanthemum were evaluated with an aim to identify suitable varieties based on different characters under hill zone of Karnataka. The experiment was carried out in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications at the experimental block of Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, College of Horticulture, Mudigere, Karnataka during 2017-2018. The results revealed that genotype Kolar Local recorded minimum days for appearance of first flower and 50 percent of flowering (90.59 and 99.66respectively.) and maximum flowering duration and crop duration (149.33 days and 239.55 days, respectively) whereas, genotype Sharad Mala recorded the maximum days for first flower appearance and 50 percent flowering (149.08 and 169.35, respectively) and minimum flowering duration and crop duration (45.43days and 190.29 days, respectively). The genotype Kolar Local recorded significantly maximum girth of the flower stalk (5.04 mm), flower diameter (5.75cm), individual flower weight (3.24g) and number of ray florets per flower (325.14). The genotype Kolar Local manifested maximum shelf life and vase life (9.54 days and 15.17days, respectively) whereas, the minimum was observed in genotype Autumn Joy (2.39days and 5.22days, respectively.)
