Abstract

The present investigation entitled “Impact of Plant Bio-regulator on growth and flowering of gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii B.) cv. Goliath” was carried out in premises of Bio-technology cum Tissue Culture Centre, Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17. The objective of the study was to standardize suitable bio-regulators on flower production in gerbera in open field condition. Apart from control eight treatments of growth regulators were used like GA3 @ 100 ppm, and 150 ppm; Cycocel @ 700 ppm and 800 ppm with or without amino acids as foliar spray. Among vegetative parameters maximum plant spread, leaf length, petiole length, leaf width and leaf area was found in GA3 @ 150 ppm + Amino Acid while maximum leaf number/plant, number of suckers/plant and chlorophyll content in leaf was found in treatment with cycocel @ 700 ppm+ Amino acid. In flowering parameters maximum number of flowers/plant/m2 in a year was found in treatment with cycocel @ 700 ppm + Amino acid.
