Abstract:

In the present study, effect of GA3 and BA on plant growth and flowering attributes of lily was evaluated. Experiment was conducted during 2014-2015 in Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi under polyhouse condition. Treatments consisted of Single and Double dose of GA3 100 ppm, GA3 150 ppm, GA3 200 ppm, BA 100 ppm, BA 150 ppm, BA 200 ppm and control. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with thirteen treatments and replicated three times. Observations were recorded on growth and bulb production lily crop. All the growth and bulb parameters were significantly influenced due to various concentrations of GA3 and BA. Results revealed that application of Double dose of BA 150 ppm resulted in maximum number of leaves and scales per plant. However, plants treated with Single dose of BA 100 ppm had maximum dry weight of leaves per plant and plant height as compared to other treatments. Maximum diameter, weight of bulb and fresh weight of leaves/plant were noted with the application of Double dose of GA3 at concentration 100 ppm, 150 ppm and 200 ppm respectively. Maximum number and weight of bulblets and diameter of bulbs were recorded with Single dose of GA3 150 ppm and GA3 100 ppm which were statistically at par with treatments BA 100 ppm (Single dose) and BA 150 ppm (Double dose).
