Abstract:
Evaluation of chrysanthemum genotypes was carried out to identify and select elite genotypes. Nine genotypes viz., HCC-1, HCC-2, HCC-3, Bidhan Madhuri, Bidhan Jayanti, Bidhan Purna, Arka Gold, Arka Chandrika and Flirt as check were selected for evaluation. The study revealed that the various genotypes showed a significant difference in plant growth, flowering and flower yield. Flirt attained the maximum height (67.03cm), plant spread (E-W) (41.96cm); observed maximum flower diameter (7.52cm) and average flower weight (3.90g) but was late to flower (80.33 days). The minimum plant height (45.36cm), plant spread in both direction (24.59cm, 25.08cm), flower diameter (2.57cm), flower weight (0.40g) and weight of flowers per plant (102.42g) were recorded by HCC-2. HCC-3 had maximum plant spread in N-S direction, the minimum number of primary branches per plant; Bidhan Purna was early to first flower initiation and opening and has the longest duration of flowering. The highest number of flowers per plant was noted by HCC-2 and lowest by Flirt. HCC-2 and Bidhan Madhuri recorded the maximum vase life (21.44 days) while Flirt recorded the lowest.
