Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the response of pinching and paclobutrazol on growth and yield of African marigold cv. Pusa Narangi in modern floriculture centre, G. B. Pant university of agriculture and technology, pantnagar, Uttarakhand. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) with twelve treatment combinations consisting 3 different concentration of paclobutrazol viz. PBZ @ 30, 60, 90 ppm and each concentration tried on pinched and non pinched plants. Pinching was done at 35 and 45 days after transplanting along with control (without pinching). The results revealed that pinching 45 days after transplanting significantly influenced several vegetative parameters like plant height (79.70 cm), primary branches per plant (15.80) and yield (427.50 g ) and among the different concentration of paclobutrazol 90 ppm shows the best result.
