Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted at Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Kulbhaskar Ashram P.G. College, Prayagraj, U.P. during the year 2016-2017 and 2017-18. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications consisted of 36 treatments with control. The four levels of Azotobacter, three levels of PSB and three levels of Vermicompost with fixed dose of cycocel along with control was taken. The results revealed that application of the treatment T22 (Azotobacter- 500 ml/ha, PSB- 500 ml/ha and Vermicompost- 2.50 t/ha) was found most effective as it gave highest flower size (8.72 cm), maximum oil percentage of flower (0.44%) and highest C.B. ratio (1:4.10). Whereas application of T26 (Azotobacter- 500 ml/ha, PSB- 1000 ml/ha and Vermicompost- 5.00 t/ha) produced maximum ratio of disk and ray florets (1:4.04) and vase life of cut flower (8.80 days). Treatment T25 showed maximum length of flower stalk (8.68 cm), Number of ray florets (192.20) were recorded under T34 (Azotobacter- 750 ml/ha, PSB- 1000 ml/ha and Vermicompost- 2.50 t/ha) but number of disk florets were observed under T35 (Azotobacter- 750 ml/ha, PSB- 1000 ml/ha and Vermicompost- 5.00 t/ha).
