Twenty eight different genotypes of African marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) were evaluated at experimental unit of Department of Floriculture and Landscaping, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi during rabi 2008-09. There was a significant variation among the genotypes for all the growth, flowering and yield parameters. The genotype AMC-10 was tallest (121.85cm) and Namdhari Cracker Jack Mix was the dwarfest (58.75cm). Genotype AMC-7 exhibited maximum stem girth (18.02mm) and plant spread (5560.80cm2). The flowering was early in the genotype Vigro Hybrid Orange. The flower yield g/plant and t/ha was maximum in genotype AMC-6 (20.83 t/ha) followed by AMC-19 (20.23 t/ha).
