PHENOTYPIC STABILITY FOR FLOWER YIELD AND ITS COMPONENTS OF SOME SELECTED SPRAY CHRYSANTHEMUM CULTIVARS

S.S. Gantait, P. Pal , K.K. Ghosdastdar
Fifteen genotypes of spray chrysanthemum were evaluated for stability parameters with respect to plant height, total leaf area per plant, number of flowers per plant and flower yield (weight) over two successive years under greenhouse and open field conditions. Prediction of performance across the environments was possible because of predominant role of predictable components. ‘Tata Red’ and ‘Aditi’ could be considered as widely adapted varieties for flower yield and number of flower per plant, respectively. ‘Red Gold’ and ‘Jaya’, showing their wide adaptability for plant height, were suitable for adverse and favourable environments, respectively, in case of flower yield.
