Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to find out influence of integrated nutrient management on flower and seed yield of African marigold cv. ‘Pusa Narangi Gainda’ during different season in mid hills condition of H.P, at Dr. Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, HP in the year of 2016-2017 during different season (rainy season and summer season). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design replicated thrice and with 10 treatments. Study showed significant effect on flower yield per plant (196.41 g), flower yield per plot (1767.63 g), seed yield per plant (10.88 g) and seed yield per plot(97.86 g) in plants supplied with Azotobacter + PSB + 70%RDF (T4). With respect to season, higher flower yield per plant (184.59 g) and maximum flower yield per plot (1661.27 g) were recorded in plants being grown during summer season, however more seed yield per plant (17.28 g) and seed yield per plot (155.52 g) was observed during rainy season planting. Maximum seed weight of seed per head (0.53 g), highest number of seed per head (186.51 g) and 1000 seed weight (3.37 g) were recorded with (T3) Azotobacter + PSB + 80% RDF during rainy season planting.
