Abstract:

Present investigation was conducted in AICRIP on Flower crops, Rajendranagar, Rangareddy district of Telangana state to study the influence of different nutrient deficiencies on growth and leaf tissue concentrations of Gerbera var. Savannah through solution culture. Plants were treated with complete Hoagland solution and deficiencies were incorporated with a complete nutrient formula minus one of the nutrients. Plants treated with nitrogen deficiency solution showed significant reduction in growth followed by P, K, Ca, Fe, and Mg. Root length of phosphorous deficient plants and shoot/root ratio of iron deficient plants were increased. Visual deficiency symptoms were expressed except for manganese deficiency during the period of study (60 DAT). Leaf analysis at 60 DAT revealed that in deficiency situation, content of individual mineral element was significantly reduced.
