Abstract:

A field experiment on foliar application of ZnSO4 and CuSO4 on growth, flowering and yield of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa L.) cv. Single was carried out at Horticultural Experimental Field, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal during 2012-13. The result of the study revealed that increasing levels of ZnSO4 upto 0.5% resulted in superior growth, flowering and yield of tuberose. Foliar application of ZnSO4 @ 0.5% gave maximum number of leaves/plant, number of tillers per plant, plant height, number of spike/plant, spike length, rachis length, number of florets/spike, number of bulbs/clump, weight of bulbs/clump, diameter of the largest bulb, yield of spike/ha and yield of bulb/ha. Among different levels of CuSO4 0.25% CuSO4 recorded significantly higher value for the growth, flowering and yield parameters. Interaction of different levels of ZnSO4 and CuSO4 recorded maximum value for growth, flowering and yield parameters.
