Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to study the effect of planting density and foliar application of nitrogen on multiplication of corms and cormels of gladiolus cv. Solan Mangla planted during summer and rainy season. Three levels of planting density viz., 100 cormels/m2, 120 cormels/m2 and 140 cormels/m2 in combination with foliar application of 500 ppm nitrogen at different days interval viz., control, 3 days interval, 5 days interval and 7 days interval were tested in split plot design with three replications. The analysed data revealed that the planting density of 100 cormels/m2 recorded maximum number of cormels/plant, weight of cormels/plant, size of cormels, weight of corms/plant and size of corm whereas highest planting density of 140 cormels/m2 exhibited maximum number of cormels, corms, weight of corms and cormels/m2 respectively. Corms and cormels parameters were significantly increased as a result of foliar application of nitrogen at different days interval as compared to control. The multiplication of corms and cormels were higher with the crop grown during summer season as compared to rainy season.
