Abstract

An experiment was conducted to evaluate different Gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.) cultivars for growth, flowering and corm multiplication at Rani Lakshmi Bai Central Agricultural University, Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, India during the year 2019–20. Ten cultivars of gladiolus namely ‘Australian Fair’, ‘African Star’, ‘Creamy Green’, ‘Pusa Srijana’, ‘Gunjan’, ‘Urvashi’, ‘Pusa Mohini’, ‘Urvashi’, ‘Suryakiran’ and ‘Chandni’ were selected for this study. Healthy and uniform sized corms of different cultivars of gladiolus were planted at a spacing of 30×10 cm2 in the month of November, 2019. Maximum plant height, spike length and rachis length was recorded in cv. ‘Australian Fair’.  Significant results were also observed in case of leaf growth and maximum leaf length was recorded in cv. ‘Gunjan’ and number of leaves plant-1 were recorded maximum in cv. ‘Surya Kiran’. However, number of florets spike-1 was observed to be maximum in cv. ‘Urvashi’. Results were found to be significant for floret size and it was recorded maximum in cv. ‘Creamy Green’. Number of corms plant-1 was recorded maximum in cvs. ‘African Star’ and ‘Gunjan’ and corm size and corm weight were recorded maximum in cv. ‘Gunjan’. However, number of cormels plant-1 were found to be maximum in cv. ‘Pusa Srijana’. Significant results related to cormel development were also recorded and cormel diameter and cormel weight were found to be maximum in cv. ‘Australian Fair’.
