Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at Modern Floriculture Centre, G.B. Pant University Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar to study the effect of pre harvest sprays on flower quality and vase life of Asiatic lilium cv. Arcachon with nine treatments and three replications. The results of the study revealed that two pre harvest foliar sprays of Benzyl adenine @ 100 μM significant in basal bud length (107.72 mm) and bud diameter (32.95 mm), upper bud length (73.33 mm) and bud diameter (22.78 mm), basal flower diameter (192.80 mm), upper flower diameter (134.36 mm). The maximum vase life (14.83 days) and water uptake was found GA3@ 250ppm/L (142.83 ml).


Keywords: Foliar spray, Pre harvest, Post-harvest and Vase Life.
