Abstract:

Ten genotypes of chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflora Tzvelve) were assessed for 12 different growth, flowering, flower yield and quality traits to study the association of different parameters with flower yield per plant (g). In the present study, days to flower bud initiation and number of flowers showed highly significant and positive association with flower yield per plant (g) at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. Number of flowers was found have highly significant negative correlation with flower diameter (cm) and individual flower weight (g) at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. However, the number of flowers showed highly significant positive correlation with flower yield per plant (g) at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. Shelf life (h) showed significant positive correlation with flower yield per plant (g) at genotypic level only indicating that, growing environment influence on flower shelf life is negligible. Hence, selection for the traits that are positively associated would be effective for flower yield improvement in chrysanthemum. Thus in chrysanthemum the genotype, which flower comparatively late with more number of flowers (lesser flower diameter and lesser flower weight) and having good shelf life of flower would increase the flower yield.
