Abstract:

The present study on the influence of organic manures and removal of spikes on corm production of gladiolus (Gladiolus x hybrida) cv. “Priscilla” was carried out as a field experiment at SKUAST- Kashmir, Shalimar campus, Jammu and Kashmir during 2014- 15. The experiment consists of twelve treatment combinations comprising of three different organic manures (FYM at 2.5 kg m-2, biodynamic compost i.e. Dalweed at 1.5 kg m-2 and vermicompost at 1 kg m-2) and removal of spike (10 days after spike emergence and at colour break), along with the control treatment (no organic manure and no removal of spike) replicated thrice in a Randomized Complete Block Deign. Among organic manures, treatment M¬2 (Biodynamic compost i.e. Dalweed at 1.5 kg m-2) revealed better vegetative characteristics (viz., plant height, number of leaves plant-1 and leaf area plant-1 recorded at 90 DAP; shoot dry weight and shoot RGR) and corm characteristics (corm dry weight, corm RGR, weight and diameter of the main corm plant-1, and number of corms and cormels plant-1). In case of removal of spike, treatment R1 (Removal after10 days of spike emergence ) was found superior in recording maximum leaf area plant-1 at 90 DAP, corm dry weight, corm RGR, weight and diameter of main corm and number of corms and cormels plant-1.
