Fourteen genotypes of chrysanthemum along with check Silper were evaluated and maximum averageÂ plant height (58.8 cm), no. of branches/plant (13.2), spray length (32.0 cm) and no. of flowers / spray (32.3) were recorded inÂ PAU-B-43 over check Silper. Highest plant spread (69.5 cm) and diameter of flower (7.9 cm) were recorded in Garden BeautyÂ over control. Minimum no. of days taken to 1st flower bud appearance (36), no. of days taken to 50% flowering (55) were recorded
in Yellow Delight over Silper. Average flower weight (3.2 g) was recorded in Raichur over check. Highest no. of flowers/plantÂ (yield) was recorded in winter queen (211) over silper and no. of suckers/plant was recorded maximum in PAU-D-1 (42.7) overÂ control.
