Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out to assess the effect of integrated nutrient management on growth and production of hydrangea at experimental farm of Dr. Y. S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, during the year 2017. Findings revealed that vegetative parameters like plant height (137.67 cm), stem length (55.18 cm), number of shoots per plant (21.59), number of leaves per plant (248.52) and yield parameters like number of cut flowers per plant (36.21) and yield of cut flowers per square meter (172.80) were found maximum in treatment T4 (Azotobacter + PSB + 70% RDF). Also, flowering parameters like minimum number of days taken for flower bud formation (93.68 days), minimum number of days taken from flower bud formation to harvesting stage (38.06 days) and maximum duration of flowering (51.36 days) were observed form the same treatment T4 (Azotobacter + PSB + 70% RDF). However, maximum stem thickness (12.26 mm) and quality parameters like inflorescence diameter (27.53 cm), weight of cut flower stem (87.34g) and vase life (19.50 days) were found maximum in treatment T3 (Azotobacter + PSB + 80% RDF).
