Abstract:

The present investigation entitled Effect of nutrient management in chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat cv. BidhanMadhuri) was carried out at BTCC, OUAT, Bhubaneswar during winter 2017-18. The experiment consists of eleven treatments having different combinations of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K) fertilizers(kg/ha) which was replicated thrice in RBD experimental design. Among all the treatment, T10 having a fertilizer combinations of N=120, P=125, K=140 kg/ha i.e. the optimum dose of fertilizer higher than that of the RDF found to be effective in producing luxuriant floral attributes i.e. minimum days taken for flower bud appearance(48.267 days),minimum days taken for flower bud opening (61.4days), maximum flower diameter(5.847cm), dry(1.173g) and high fresh weights of flower(3.256g), number of flowers(67.733), flowering duration (74.333days) and vase life period.(20.000days).Hence it can be recommended for obtaining optimum growth, desired flowering and yield attributes and this treatment having fertilizer combinations of N=120, P=125, K=140 kg/ha is suggested for Chrysanthemum crop in Bhubaneswar condition.
