Abstract:

Cultivar Prof. Harris performed better in terms of flower diameter (10.00 cm), fresh and dry weight (57.9 and 15.97 g) of cut flower, whereas cultivar Sunil showed longer flower stem length (48.66 cm), water uptake (90.78 ml) and vase life (20.41 days). Application of 75% recommended dose of fertilizer and vermicompost coupled with dual inoculation of Azotobacter and VAM proved most effective in enhancing the flower stem length (53.68 cm), more flower diameter (11.97 cm) and enhanced vase life of flowers (22.70 days). The highest water uptake (93.51ml) and maximum available nitrogen (184.23 kg/ha), phosphorus (28.53 kg/ha) and potassium content (192.26 kg/ha) was recorded in treatment with application of 75% RDF + Azotobacter + VAM + vermicompost (T15).
