Evaluation of gerbera genotypes for growth, yield and flower quality under subtropical conditions of Jammu

Author(s): Sheetal Dogra
Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of seventeen genotypes of gerbera, viz., Bonmare, Palmbeach, Romella, Natasha, Toro Rosso, Bubblegum, Esmara, Marinilla, Rionegro, Havana, Lexington, Vilassar, Amlet, Nigella, Silky Tears, Fahrenheit and Sona under naurally ventilated polyhouse in Jammu subtropics. The experiment was performed in Completely Randomized Block Design and replicated three times. Among the genotypes considered, there was significant difference in terms of vegetative growth, floral characteristics and yield. The maximum plant height (30 cm) and number of leaves (10), plant spread and floral characters were found in geneotype ‘Toro Rosso’. Moreover, the Maximum flowering duration of 14.67 days was recorded in genotype ‘Rionegro’, whereas the maximum vase life of 10 days as also recorded in genotype Rionegro’.
