Abstract:

Gerbera is one of the important commercial cut flower which is in great demand in domestic as well as international market. Though suited for a wide range of climates, the crop’s performance varies in different locations and climatic conditions. The present investigation was conducted during Rabi season of 2010–11and 2011-12 at Greenhouse Complex, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, Gujarat with an object to evaluate suitable varieties on the basis of growth, flower and yield parameters of gerbera under South Gujarat conditions. Among the varieties, the tallest plant (54.68 cm) was observed in Venezia which was followed by (49.72 cm) CF Gold while the maximum clumps per plant (7.05) were recorded in Stanza followed by (6.71) Lion and (5.73) CF Gold. The variety Torbin has significantly superior flower diameter (10.86, 10.81 and 10.84 cm in 2010-11, 2011-12 and pooled analysis, respectively) while the number of ray florets were highest (79.48, 79.39 and 79.43 during 2010-11, 2011-12 and pooled analysis, respectively) in variety CF Orange. The results revealed that the variety Venezia recorded significantly highest stalk length (63.91, 63.41 and 63.66 cm) as well as stalk diameter (6.57, 6.60 and 6.58 mm), during both the individual years of experiment and pooled data, respectively. The variety Stanza was superior variety with respect to production of number of flowers per plant (42.13, 41.54 and 41.84 flowers /plant /year) as well as number of flowers per square meter per year (252.80, 249.26 and 251.03 flowers /m2 /year) which was followed by CF Gold and Fana during both the experimental years and in pooled data, respectively while the lowest yield was recorded in Cherany (20.28 flowers /plant/year and 121.65 flowers/m2/year).
