Varietal evaluation of Asiatic lilium hybrid on growth and bulblet production during scale propagation

Author(s):

GP Panda and Dr. CR Mohanty

Abstract:
An experiment was carried out for evaluation of five Asiatic hybrid lily varieties viz., New Wave (V1), Orange Matrix (V2), Alaska (V3), Nov Cento (V4) and Monte Negro (V) during scale propagation in form of a pot culture experiment in the terrace garden of the Department of Floriculture and Landscape, OUAT, Bhubaneswar. For this purpose scales were detached from bulb of five different Lilium varieties. The results of the study related to growth and bulblet production variety New Wave (V1) recorded maximum number of leaves scale-1, number of roots scale-1. Besides, it also recorded maximum circumference and weight of individual bulblets as well as weight of total number of bulblets scale-1. On the other hand variety Orange Matrix (V2) recorded maximum number of bulblets scale-1. Maximum sprouting percentage of scales and maximum length of roots were observed with variety Alaska (V3). Its performance with respect to circumference and weight of individual bulblets and weight of total number of bulblets scale-1 was next to variety New Wave (V1). Performance of variety Nov Cento (V4) was next to Orange Matrix (V2) with respect to number of bulblets produced scale-1. Among the five varieties under study performance of variety Monte Negro (V5) was very poor with respect to all the parameters related to growth and bulblets production. From the results of the investigation, it could be interfered that New Wave (V1) is the most suitable variety with respect to growth and bulblets production of Lilium during scale propagation.
