Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Evaluation of different genotypes of Gomphrena under South Saurashtra region” was carried out at Jambuvadi, Department of Horticulture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during the year 2019-20. A field experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design, with three replication and seven genotypes namely AGS 1, AGS 3, AGS 4, AGS 5, AGS 8, AGS 14 and Local genotype. Seven genotypes of Bachelor’s button (Gomphrena globosa L.) were evaluated with an aim to identify suitable genotype based on different characters under South Saurashtra region. The results revealed that the maximum plant height (105.46 cm), number of branch (18.40), plant spread (57.80 cm), length of branches (72.51) and number of leaves per plant (3716.33) were observed in the genotype AGS 4. The minimum days to flower bud initiation (33.07), 50 per cent flowering (42.80) and first flower bud show its color (3.13 days) was noticed under genotype AGS 14 followed by genotype AGS 3 and AGS 4 and maximum days took in genotype AGS 8 with respect to days required for flower bud initiation (46.81), days for 50 per cent flowering (60.87) and days took for first flower bud show its color (6).
