Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of plant growth regulators on growth, yield, and flower quality of gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii L.) cv. Pink Elegance under naturally ventilated polyhouse in the Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad, U.P. during winter season 2016 to 2017. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications and nine treatments. In this study gerbera plants were sprayed four times with 50,100,150,200 ppm ofGA3 and 50,100,150,200 ppm of NAA along with control (water spray). The results of five months experimentation revealed that maximum plant height (45.27 cm), number of leaves per plant (27.40), plant spread (54.17cm), days to first flower bud emergence or earliness (39.90 days), flower diameter (14.74 cm), stalk length (52.90 cm), stalk girth (2.57 cm),number of flowers per plant (12.50) and number of cut flowers per treatment (112.50) were produced in treatment (T3) GA3 at 150ppm.Whereas maximum vase life of flower (14.80 days) and number of suckers per plant (6.10)were produced by treatment (T2) GA3 at 100 ppm. T3 was found to be the best treatment for good vegetative as well as reproductive growth.
