Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of NAA, BA and Kinetin on growth of African marigold during rabi season of 2009-10. The trial was conducted in a completely randomized block design with ten treatments in three replications. The treatments comprised of three level each of NAA (100, 200, 300 ppm), BA (25, 50, 75 ppm) and kinetin (50, 100, 150 ppm) thus, making 10 treatments including absolute control. The result of the present study indicated that application of NAA, BA and Kinetin significantly increased the growth and yield at different levels and among these. Among different treatment, application of NAA had more pronounced effect on growth and yield of African marigold as compared to BA and Kinetin. NAA @ 300 ppm recorded maximum plant height (77.26 cm), number of branches (14.53), plant spread (60.80x56.86 cm2), number of flowers per plant (57.60), average weight of flowers (12.93g), average diameter of flowers (9.20 cm) and yield of flowers per plant (744.7 g), per plot (7.36 kg) and per hectare (170.37 q).


Keywords: African marigold, plant growth regulators (PGRs), Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA), Benzyladenine (BA), Kinetin.
