Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to study the influence of integrated nutrient management on flowering and corm parameters in gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.) cv. American Beauty with the application of bio-fertilizers (Azotobacter, PSB and KMB), FYM and foliar spray of Nauroji Novel Organic Liquid Fertilizer with 100, 75 and 50% recommended dose of NPK, respectively. The results showed that minimum days taken to spike initiation (48.10 days), maximum diameter of 2nd floret (8.50 cm), number of florets per spike (11.30), number of spikes per plant (2.50), number of spikes per hectare (401234.57), number of corms per plant (2.43), weight of corms per plant (76.00 g), weight of cormels per plant (12.67 g), size of the corm (5.67 cm), nitrogen (1.53%), phosphorus (1.07%) and potash (1.93%) contents in leaf, minimum soil electrical conductivity (0.67 dSm-1) with highest available nitrogen (178.73 kg/ha), available phosphorus (19.48 kg/ha), available potash (314.13 kg/ha), soil organic carbon (0.80%) and microbial population (90.67 x 10-7 CFU/g soil) was found with the application of 100% RDF + FYM @ 7.5 t/ha + Azotobacter + PSB + KMB + 1% foliar spray of Nauroji Novel Organic Liquid Fertilizer (T10).
