Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of levels of fertigation on vegetative and flowering characters of marigold cv. Pusa Narangi Gainda under open conditions. The experiment was laid out with seven treatments at Floricultural Research Station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during 2016-2017. The results indicated significant difference among the treatments with respect to plant height at flower harvesting stage, number of primary branches, days to first flower bud initiation, full bloom, number of flowers per plant, flower yield per plot and flower yield per hectare. Application of 75% of recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) in water soluble form (WSF) promoted maximum plant height and number of primary branches per plant. Further, application of 75% of RDF in WSF also resulted in early flower bud initiation, maximum number of flowers per plant, flower yield per plot and flower yield per hectare and recorded a benefit cost ratio of 2.10.
