ABSTRACT

A field experiment was conducted during winter season of 2015-16 to study 'Studies Effect of Planting Dates and Varieties on Growth and Quality on Gladiolus (Gladiolus hybridus Hort.) under sub-humid zone of Rajasthan' having 15 treatment combinations of five Varieties (V1- African Star, V2- Hunting Song, V3- Legend, V4- Pusa Srijana and V5- Snow Princess) and three planting dates (D1- 10th October, D2- 25th October and D3- 9th November). The treatment V2D1 (Hunting Song + 10th October planting) recorded the maximum plant height (116.10 cm), highest number of leaves per plant (8.77), main stem diameter (1.50 cm), number of florets per spike (15.8), spike length (91.80 cm), rachis length (57.90 cm), floret diameter (10.04 cm), vase life of spike (13 days), While the maximum leaf length (64.20 cm), leaf width (4.96 cm) in (V5D3) and maximum spike girth (0.91cm) was found in (V1D2). The growth and flowering quality was found superior in compare to other planting dates.
