Vasudev P. Naik, Manjunath S. Patil and Giriraj R. Jadhav

Abstract

Investigations on effect of micronutrients on growth, yield and quality of rose under green house were carried out. Among the varieties, number of sprays and micronutrients variety Grand Gala, double spray and micronutrient T7 (Rose booster @ 0.25%) found best and recorded maximum plant height, plant spread, number of shoots, leaf area, chlorophyll content. The same also recorded maximum stalk length (54.43 cm), stalk girth, flower yield and maximum vase life (7.77 days). Among the interaction effects, the combination V2S2T6 recorded highest plant height (67.30 cm), V1S1T7 recorded maximum plant spread (41.33 cm), V2S2T5 recorded maximum leaf area 14.16 cm2, and V2S2T6 recorded maximum chlorophyll content (60.0 mg/cm2). V2S2T7 recorded maximum number of flowers (12.82) per plant and V2S2T6 recorded maximum vase life (8.63 days).
