Abstract:

A field study was conducted in the Experimental Farm, Department of Horticulture, Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat for three years viz., during 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12. The results of three years pooled data of the experiment revealed that among the different treatments, application of enrich compost@10t/ha (T2) significantly increases the growth and flower characters followed by combination of enrich compost @10t/ha + Biofertilizer (T4). Highest plant height (53.19 cm) stalk length (56.50cm), days to full bloom (64.50), no of flowers/Plant (38.19), size of flower (9.53cm), self life (21.98 days) vaselife (9.89days) no of suckers/ plant (16.69), benefit cost ratio (7.55) was recorded under treatment T2 followed by T4. Among soil parameters, MBC (18.86μg g-1 soil), dehydrogenase (264.73 μg TPF g-1 soil), phosphomonoesterase (42.87 μg p-nitophenol g-1 soil), fluorescein diacetate (5.42 μg fluorescein g-1 soil), were found better in treatment treated with enriched compost@10t/ha.
