Abstract:

The high density plantation approach is in vogue these days to mitigate the effects of decreasing area under the saffron cultivation. The approach has found wide adoption due to increase in the production and productivity of flowers as well as corms. A study was conducted wherein the graded and disease free corms were planted at different densities viz. 5corms/hill (25 X15cm), 10 corms/ hill (30 X 20 cm), 12 corms/hill (30 X 20cm) and 15 corms/hill at the density of 20X10 cm after following the recommended package of practices. It was found that the 5 corms/hill resulted in maximum daughter corm production, more number of leaves, higher flower production and hence more yields.
