Abstract:

Two strains of annual chrysanthemum [Glebionis coronaria (L.) Spach] viz. GC-W (White) and GC-Y (Yellow), as part of their proposed INM schedule were applied with certain organic (Biofertilizers, Jeevamrit) and inorganic fertilizers (NPK) in various combinations. Same observations on various growth and flowering and yield parameters were recorded both the strains in two successive years. Results revealed that growth parameters such as maximum plant height (95.31 cm), plant spread (45.19 cm), flowering parameters such as minimum number of days taken for first flower opening (95.01 days), maximum number of flowers per plant (170.50), individual flower weight (2.30 g), duration of flowering (54.97 days) and yield parameters such as maximum flower yield per plant (490.80 g) were recorded in the plants receiving the treatment of Azotobacter, Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria (PSB) and 75% recommended dose of fertilizers (20 g N and 10 g P2O5 / m2). Whereas maximum flower size at the time of peak flowering (5.91 cm), was found in the plants supplied with Azotobacter, PSB and 50% RDF. The observed cost benefit ratio in both the strains ranged from 1.92 (GC-W) to 2.00 (GC-Y).
