Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the effect of foliar application of micro nutrients on growth, flowering characters of gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.) cv. Novalux in the year 2015-2016.The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments FeSO4 0.25%, FeSO4 0.5%, ZnSO4 0.25%, ZnSO4 0.5%, FeSO4 0.25%+ ZnSO4 0.25%, FeSO4 0.25%+ ZnSO4 0.5%, FeSO4 0.5%+ ZnSO4 0.25%, FeSO4 0.5%+ ZnSO4 0.5% and a control replicated thrice to assess the effect of iron and zinc on growth and flowering characters of gladiolus. Result reveals that the spraying of FeSO4 0.5%+ ZnSO4 0.25% was proved to be most effective to increase Plant height (64.80 cm), number of leaves per plant (9.26), number of days taken for spike initiation (98.53), number of days taken for opening of first floret (111.60), duration of flowering (15.10 days), length of spike (103.40 cm), Number of spike per ha (1.35lakh) and however, diameter of spike (1.53cm) was recorded maximum in FeSO4 0.5%+ ZnSO4 0.5%.
