Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at experimental unit of Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, College of Horticulture, Mudigere of Chikmagalur District, Karnataka, India to study the correlation effect in marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) to the inoculation of Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi at different P levels on xanthophyll yield and other parameters. In this experiment the VAM fungi viz., Glomus fasciculatum, G. mosseae, G. intraradices with an un-inoculated control was maintained and three P levels viz., 60, 90, 120 kg ha-1 were tried. The results brought out that xanthophyll yield was positively and significantly correlated with plant height (r = +0.964), number of secondary branches (r = +0.949), total dry matter production (r = +0.958), leaf area (r = +0.958), LAD (r = +0.958), NAR (r = +0.957), CGR (r = +0.872), flower size (r = +0.839), number of flowers per plant (r = +0.954), flower yield per hectare (r = +0.952), petal meal yield per hectare (r = +0.982), N uptake per hectare (r = +0.908), P-uptake per hectare (r = +0.919) and xanthophyll content per kg of petal meal (r = +0.964).


Keywords: Marigold, VAM, xanthophyll, phosphorus, Glomus fasciculatum, G. mosseae, G. intraradices.
