Abstract

Performance of twelve gladiolus cultivars was assessed at the experimental farm of Division of Vegetable Science and Floriculture, SKUAST-Jammu, in respect of their morphological characters. All the cultivars viz., ‘Advance Red’, ‘Interpad’, ‘Sylvia’, ‘Spic Span’, ‘Rose Supreme’, ‘Pusa Gunjan’, ‘Pusa Gulal’, ‘Peter Pears’, ‘Purple Flora’, ‘Jester Gold’, ‘Chandani’ and ‘Superstar’ were evaluated under Jammu conditions in 2006–2007. The analyzed data indicated that ‘Advance Red’ was superior over rest of the cultivars in plant height, days to slipping, spike length, rachis length, number of florets/spike, diameter of first floret and number of cormelsper plant (21.00). However, maximum number of daughter corms (2.33) and flowering duration was recorded in cv. ‘Pusa Gunjan’. Thus, it was concluded that cultivars ‘Advance Red’, ‘Peter Pears’ and, Pusa Gunjan can be recommended for cultivation in Jammu region.
