A study was conducted in an open condition at Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arbhavi, located in the Belgaum District of Karnataka with the objective of determining the effect of cultivar, planting geometry and their interaction on yield and quality of Rose. The experiment was laid out in a 3 x 3 factorial arrangement using a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. The treatments consisted of three cultivars (‘Sophia’, ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Divine’) and three different planting densities viz., S1 (0.90 x 0.90 m), S2 (0.60 × 0.60 m) double row and S3 (0.60 × 0.60 m) triple row. Data were collected on parameters pertaining to growth, yield and quality of Rose. The results of the study indicate a trend of rise in the flower yield as the plant density increased from S1 (0.90 x 0.90 m) to S3 (0.60 × 0.60 m) triple row. Conversely, flowers’ shelf life and flower weight significantly decreased when planted densely. Among the cultivars, ‘Sophia’ was found to be more productive in terms of flower yield followed by ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Divine’. Cultivars ‘Sophia’ and ‘Gladiator’ had better performance in many of the parameters than the ‘Divine’ cultivar. The highest and lowest planting density demonstrated a positive influence on the yield and quality parameters respectively and therefore can be recommended for use by commercial growers. However, further investigation is imperative on issues pertaining to the determination of nutrient supply for regulating the fresh weight of the product and other economic related topics.

Key words: Rose, Rosa species, Planting density, Cultivar, Yield
