Abstract:

Present experiment was carried out in the Experimental Farm, Department of Horticulture, School of Agricultural Sciences and Rural Development, Nagaland University, Medziphema Campus during 2014-15 and 2015-16 to study the response of pre harvest treatments on vase life attributes of Gladiolus primulinus cv. Candyman. The experiment was laid out in RBD with 14 treatments and 3 replications. The treatments were T0 (Control), T1 (FYM 40 t ha-1), T2 (Pig manure 35 t ha-1), T3 (Vermicompost 10 t ha-1), T4 (NPK 100% RDF i.e. 200:200:200 kg NPK ha-1); T5 (Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T6 (50% NPK + 50% FYM), T7 (50% NPK + 50% Pig manure), T8 (50% NPK + 50% Vermicompost), T9 (50% NPK + Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T10 (75% NPK + Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T11 (50% NPK + 25% FYM + Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T12 (50% NPK + 25% Pig manure + Azospirillum + Phosphotica) and T13 (50% NPK + 25% Vermicompost + Azospirillum + Phosphotica). Pooled data revealed that T12 recorded the highest fresh weight (65.37 g), water uptake (21.41 g), water loss (17.06 g) and water balance ratio (1.263) on the 3rd day of vase life. Maximum days to drooping of the 1st floret (4.86) and 5th floret (8.46), maximum florets to remain open at a specific time (6.34) and longest vase life (12.51 days) were also observed in the same treatment.
