Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of levels of fertigation on flowering and shelf life of marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. Pusa Narangi Gainda under open conditions at Floricultural Research Station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during 2016-2017. The experiment consisted of seven levels of fertigation treatments with combination of water soluble and straight fertilizers. The results revealed that flowering and storage life of marigold flowers were significantly influenced by different levels of fertigation. Duration of flowering (45.74 days), number of pickings per month (5.10), flower yield per plot (23.37 kg /plot) and flower yield per hectare (14.42 t/ha) were maximum with the application of 75 per cent of recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) with Water Soluble fertilizers. Further at the same fertigation level shelf life of flowers (3.59 days) and shelf life of flowers packed in polyethylene cover (5.25 days) were recorded maximum.
