Assessment of marigold genotypes for flowering and yield attributes

BS Beniwal and Sonu Sheoran
A field experiment was conducted to assess the fourteen genotypes of marigold for promising flowering and yield attributes at Experimental Orchard of Department of Horticulture, CCS HAU, Hisar during the winter season of 2018-19. This experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. All genotypes exhibited significant variation in terms of various flowering and yield attributes. Statistical analysis of data revealed that flowers having maximum diameter (11.50 cm) and fresh weight (13.40 g) were recorded in African genotype MGH 133-1-2-1, whereas, the maximum number of flowers per plant (164.0) were obtained from French genotype Hisar Jafri-2. The highest yield in terms of flower yield per plant (902.48 g), flower yield per m2 (5.641 kg) and flower yield per plot (21.659 kg) was also recorded from Hisar Jafri-2. From the present experiment, it may be concluded that African marigold genotype MGH 133-1-2-1 and French genotype Hisar Jafri-2 were found promising for various floral and yield attributes.
