Abstract:

An experiment was carried out at Horticulture Section, College of Agriculture, Nagpur during rabi season of the year 2017-18 to study the effect of nitrogen and potassium on growth and flowering of annual chrysanthemum. The treatment comprised of four levels of nitrogen (0, 100, 150 and 200 kg N ha-1) and four levels of potassium (0, 50, 75 and 100 kg ha-1) in all sixteen treatments combinations planted in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that plant height (112.95 cm and 110.54 cm respectively), stem diameter (2.65 cm and 2.55 cm respectively), number of branches (29.36 and 28.05 respectively), spread of plant (63.13 cm and 59.44 cm respectively) and leaf area (28.10 cm2 and 25.49 cm2 respectively) were recorded significantly maximum with the treatment individual application of 200 kg nitrogen and 75 kg K ha-1. Yield contributing characters like number of flower plant-1 (113.26 and 107.43), number of seed flower-1 (211.41), seed yield flower-1 (30.55 g), plot-1 (624.97 g) and ha-1 (11.00 qt) were recorded significantly maximum with the treatment individual application of 200 kg nitrogen and 75 kg K ha-1.
