Abstract:
Germplasm assessment of tulip cultivars was carried out during 2018-19 at Division of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture SKUAST- K Shalimar with an objective to assess the genetic diversity on the basis of qualitative and quantitative traits of growth, flowering and propagation ratio. Results of the investigation recorded minimum to maximum values for days to sprouting after planting 84 days for White flag & 103 days for Apeldoorn, days to flowering 110 days for Alectric & 125.00 days for Avant grade, flower diameter 4.70 cm for Candela & 8.18 cm for Apeldoorn, duration of flowering 12 days for White flag & 19 days for Angelique, plant height 33.31 cm for Candela & 52.53 cm for Apeldoorn, number of leaves per plant 4 for White flag & Candela & 6.00 for Apeldoorn, number of bulbs plant-11.10 for Atillagraffity & 1.62 for Apeldoorn and weight of bulbs plant-1 12.30g for Candela) & 17.24 for Apeldoorn, simultaneously and respectively. It was concluded that highly significant varietal differences indicated the presence of high amount of variability.
