Study on the effect of varieties and disbudding to produce the quality cut flower of chrysanthemum was conducted in 2015-2016 at the Floriculture Research Field of Horticulture Research Centre, BARI, Gazipur, Bangladesh. The treatments were consisted of two varieties (standard white and standard yellow) with 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 blooms/plant and no disbudding as the control. data were taken under these variables, plants survived/plot, days to bud initiation, days to bud burst, stalk length, flower head size, flower sticks/plot. The longest flower stalk was found in standard white (22.17 cm) and the maximum size of a flower head was obtained in standard yellow (7.06 cm). Disbudding had significant influence in stalk length and flower head size. The longest stalk and flower head size were achieved with allowing 4 bloom/plant which was 27.36 cm and 7.07 cm, respectively.
