An experiment was laid out at the Horticultural Experimental Field of College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal during 2018 to examine the effect on different levels of potassium on growth and yield of gladiolus corm under the o acidic soil condition. The experiment was conducted assigning eight treatments in a randomized block design with three replications. The results generated from the experiment showed that the application of 210 Kg K2O/ha gave the maximum number of leaves (8.63), plant height (74.44 cm), length of the leaves (52.83), corm weight (59.27 g), corm diameter(6.12 cm), number of cormels (22.33 Nos.), corm yield per ha in tones (0.219506 tonnes) and also gave the highest benefit-cost ratio (0.85). However, the control (without potassium) gives minimum growth, yield and benefit-cost ratio.
