Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to determine the comparative effect of integrated nutrient management on the cut flower production of tuberose in randomized block design (RBD), having 12 treatments T1 RDF (240:160:100 kg NPK ha−1), T2 75% RDF ha−1, T3 125% RDF ha−1, T4 75% RD F + 250q FYM ha−1, T5 75% RDF +500q FYM ha−1, T6 75% RDF + 125q Vermicompost ha−1, T7 75% RDF + 250q Vermicompost ha−1, T8 75% RDF + 250q FYM + 125q Vermicompost ha−1, T9 75% RDF + 250q FYM + 250q Vermicompost ha−1, T10 75% RDF + 500q FYM + 125q Vermicompost ha−1, T11 75% RDF + 500q FYM + 250q Vermicompost ha−1 and untreated (control) which were replicated thrice during spring season 2008 and 2009. The effect of these applications was also recorded on predators and yield attributes. All the treatments had the comparable better floral qualities as well as higher cut flower production than un-treated control. Among all the treatments, the maximum number of shoot clump−1 (18.95) and number of leaves shoot−1 (19.44) were recorded with the application of 75% recommended dose of NPK + 500q FYM ha−1 + 250q Vermicompost ha−1. The maximum spike yield (205030.71 spikes/ha) were recorded with the application of 75% recommended dose of NPK + 500q ha−1 FYM + 250q ha−1 Vermicompost followed by 75% recommended dose of NPK + 500 q ha−1 FYM + 125 q ha−1 Vermicompost (199778.50 spikes/ha) although both the treatments did not varied significantly.
