Abstract:

An experiment entitled “Response of gladiolus growth, flowering and corm to Trichoderma and varieties” was carried out at Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, (U.P.), during 2017-2018. Experiment consisted of eight varieties of gladiolus namely Yellow Jester, Tiger Flame, Punjab Morning, Punjab Dawn, Pusa Kiran, Shubhangini, IIHR, and Dhanvantri and application of Trichoderma i.e. treated and control. Thus there were sixteen treatment combinations. Experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Application of Trichoderma was found beneficial for plant growth and flowering characters. Plant treated with Trichoderma show maximum width of leaf and plant height at 60 days. The width of scape also influenced by Trichoderma but there was no any significant effect of Trichoderma on width of scape. Plant treated with Trichoderma show maximum rachis length and longevity of 5th floret. Days to colour show, longevity of 3rdfloret and number of open floret without withering first floret are influenced by Trichoderma but there was no any significant influence of Trichoderma. Among different varieties cv. Shubhangini recorded maximum width of leaf at 60 days, whereas in cultivar Yellow Jester exhibited maximum width of scape. The maximum plant height was recorded in cultivar Dhanvantri. The maximum longevity of 3rd and 5th floret was recorded in cultivar Yellow Jester and maximum number of open floret without withering first floret recorded in cultivar Dhanvantri. However maximum rachis length and minimum days to colour show exhibited by cv. IIHR.
