Abstract:
The present experiment was conducted at Department of Horticulture, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth Parbhani. (Maharashtra) during the year 2019-2020 in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) of three replications. The present work was undertaken to observe the response of chrysanthemum varieties V1-Pink Cloud, V2- Devi and V3-Bidhan Agnisikha over EMS T1 -0.05%, T2 -0.1%, T3 -0.5%, T4 -1.0%, T5- Gamma rays 0.5 kR, T6 -1.0 kR, T7 -1.5 kR, T8 -2.0 kR, T9 - Control treatments. The different treatments to rooted cuttings of chrysanthemum varieties with EMS and gamma rays had significantly influenced the vegetative growth, yield and quality characters and also created the variability. Significant reduction occurred in both EMS and gamma rays treated seedlings of chrysanthemum varieties in terms of plant spread, diameter of main stem, chlorophyll content index, number of flowers per plant, yield of flowers per plant, weight of single flower and diameter of flower as compared to control.
