Abstract:

Effect of planting time and growing conditions on sprouting and growth of gladiolus cultivar American Beauty was studied Precision Farming Development Center of Department of Horticulture, CCS Haryana Agriculture University, Hisar. Maximum percentage of sprouting of corms (99.32%), number of leaves per plant (8.81), leaf area (105.97cm2) and plant height (106.12 cm) was observed in 15th October planting. Whereas, minimum percentage of sprouting of corms (71.75%), number of leaves (6.95), leaf area (88.20 cm2), and plant height (92.12 cm) were recorded under 15th December planting. However, minimum number of days required for corm sprouting (11.77 days), spike initiation (105.5 days), basal floret opening (119 days), last floret opening (127.3 days) were observed in 15th October planting. Whereas, maximum number of days taken to sprouting of corms (18.75 days), spike initiation (114.4 days), basal floret opening (126.8 days), last floret opening (134.6 days) were recorded under 15th December planting. Among the growing conditions shade net house was significantly superior to the open field condition in respect to percentage of sprouting (86.00%), leaf area (105.25 cm2), plant height (106.50 cm), days required to spike initiation (107.9 days), basal floret opening (121.1days), and last floret opening (129.7days). However, minimum number of days to corm sprouting (12.10 days) and maximum number of leaves per plant (8.85) was recorded in open field condition.
