Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during rabi season 2009-10 to study the effect of integrated nutriment management on growth and yield of African marigold. The treatment consisted of four levels of FYM and inorganic fertilizers and four biofertilizers (control, Azotobacter, PSB and Azotobacter + PSB). Application of 75% RDF + FYM @ 20 t ha-1 along with inoculation of seedlings with Azotobacter + PSB produced significantly higher plant height, number of primary branches plant-1, weight of flower, number of flowers plant-1, yield of flowers plot-1 as well as ha-1. These parameters were statistically at par with the application of 50% RDF + FYM @ 20 t ha-1 along with inoculation of seedlings with Azotobacter + PSB.
