Abstract:

A field study was conducted during 2015 to investigate the effect of nitrogen and GA3 on suppression of flowering for enhancement of vegetative phase in stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni.). The result revealed that maximum plant height, number of branches per plant and fresh leaf yield per hectare was recorded with the application of nitrogen at 120 Kg per hectare at 90 DAT. At 90 DAT application of GA3 500 ppm recorded significantly higher plant height and number of branches per plant. Manual deflowering recorded highest fresh leaf yield per ha, while the minimum fresh leaf yield per ha was observed in control.
