Abstract

The study was conducted on evaluation of eighteen genotypes of glory lily (Gloriosa
superba L.) under tropical humid condition of Tamil Nadu. The genotype GS 15 exhibited superior
performance for most of the characters, followed by GS 06. However, genotype GS 05 took
maximum days to flowering, whereas maximum duration of fifty per cent flowering was recorded
with GS 18. The genotype GS 7 exhibited the lowest PDI value and this genotype considered as
tolerant to leaf blight. Genotype GS 17 exerted poorest performance on various growth, flowering
and yield attributes.

Keywords
