Abstract:
A study was conducted under Akola conditions of Maharashtra to evaluate twelve varieties of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa L.) during the year 2021-22. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Desgin (RBD) with three replications. The results revealed that among all the cultivars, Prajwal was found superior with respect to maximum plant height (76.28 cm), number of leaves per plant (73.59), leaf area per leaf (201.89 cm2) and leaf area per plant (14859.70 cm2), minimum days for commencement of spike (59.61 days) whereas minimum days for opening of first floret (77.63 days), days for 50 percent flowering (106.70 days) and maximum number of florets per spike (54.13) were observed in variety Bidhan Ujwal. Based on the performance of all the varieties, variety Prajwal appears to be superior as compared to the other varieties for Akola conditions.
