|Abstract:||Chrysanthemum is one of the most important flower crops cultivated widely in temperate, tropical and subtropical regions of the globe. The improvement of chrysanthemum depends on the identification of cultivars for different agro climatic conditions. Differences in planting months would bring about a variation among the cultivars with respect to growth, yield and flower quality parameters. The present study was aimed for selection of suitable time of planting for a particular cultivar to maximize the flower yield and quality inturn to get more profit. The performance of ten different cultivars viz., Dundi, Accession No. 2, Chitradurga Local, Autumn Joy, Garden Beauty, Accession No. 1, Winter Queen, Karnool, Raja and Statesman, was tested in four different planting months at two months intervals viz., June, August, October and December. Planting was done starting from June, 2012 to April, 2013. The experiment was laidout by following two factorial randomized complete block design with two replications. The results revealed that the June month planting found best to produce good quality flowers with higher yields and returns. Among the different cultivars, Automn Joy, Winter Queen, Accession No. 2, Dundi and Karnool were vigorous in vegetative growth. Dundi produced 100 per cent flowering even in December month planting also, but other cultivars were specific in flowering to a particular month. Cultivars Automn Joy, Raja and States Man cultivars did not produced flowers in December month planting. Accession No. 1 produced flowers only in June month of planting. Flower yield was higher in June month planted Garden Beauty, Dundi and Karnool. The gross returns, net returns and B:C ratio were maximum in cultivars Accession No. 2, Raja, Dundi and Karnool. Dundi even planted in December gave comparatively more returns than other cultivars. Cultivar Dundi found better for planting from June to December months.|
