Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to determine the response of different doses of N, P and K on plant growth, flower quality and yield of Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii L.) in the Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Allahabad, U.P. during the Rabi season 2016-2017. Eleven treatments were included in the trial viz., T0 (10:15:20) RDN; T1 (11:16.5:22); T2 (12:18:24); T3 (13:19.5:26); T4 (14:21:28); T5 (15:22.5:30); T6 (16:24:32); T7 (17:25.5:34); T8 (18:27:36); T9 (19:28.5:38); T10 (20:30:40) N.P.K g/m2 were tested in three replication. The experiment of design was Randomized Block Design. The results revealed that fertilizer treatments had significant response on plant height, number of leaves per plant, plant spread, number of suckers per plant, number of flowers per plant, number of flowers per treatment, days to first flower bud appearance, flower diameter, stalk length, stalk diameter and vase life of flower. The maximum plant height (41.47 cm), number of leaves per plant (17.70), plant spread (56.57 cm), days to first flower bud appearance (50.13) were produced by the treatment (T7) of N:P:K in the ratio of 17:25.5:34 g NPK/m2. Maximum number of suckers per plant (6.47) was found in treatment (T9) in the ratio of 19:28.5:38 g NPK/m2 and the maximum number of flowers per plant (12.87), number of flowers per treatment (49.03), flower diameter (14.47 cm), stalk length (46.47 cm), stalk diameter (0.90 cm) and vase life of flower (14.87 days) were recorded by treatment (T10)in the ratio of 20:30:40 g NPK/m2.
