The present investigation on Impact of INM practices on growth and flowering of Gerbera was carried out in premises of Biotechnology cum Tissue Culture Centre OUAT Bhubaneswar during 2015-16 and 2016-17. The objective of the study was to develop an INM model for cut flower production of gerbera in open field condition. Eight fertilization treatment combinations were used consisting of 100 % RDF, Vermicompost, 75 % RDF, PSB, Azospirillum, Azotobacter, and foliar application of macro and micro elements. The result revealed that application of 75 % RDF (15:10:30 g NPK/m2) + Vermicompost+ (25 g/m2) + Azospirillum/ Azotobacter (20 g/m2) + PSB+ macro and micro element spray increased all of vegetative parameters of gerbera. In flowering parameter, number of flower/plant were maximum in the same treatment. It can be concluded that reducing level of chemical fertiliser to 75 % RDF along with application of different organic source of nutrient can improve flower yield of gerbera in open field condition.

Keywords: RDF, Azospirillum, Vermicompost, PSB, Azotobacter
