Abstract

A field experiment was conducted  at Regional Agricultural Research Station,   Anakapalli of Acharya N.G.Ranga Agricultural University Hyderabad during 2003-2004 to find out suitable high yielding varieties for commercial cultivation of tuberose under North coastal zone of Andhra Pradesh. The results indicated that Calcutta single recorded maximum spike length and at par with Hyderabad single and Calcutta double. Sringar produced highest number of flowers per plant (44.5). Significantly higher numbers of spikes were produced in Calcutta single (1.80). Weight of the spike was significantly higher in Hyderabad single (61.9 g).
