Abstract:
This experiment was conducted at Model Floriculture Centre, G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar (India) in the year 2016. This experiment was laid out in completely randomized block design with nine treatments and three replications. Pre harvest foliar spray was used with two different concentrations of each harmones, Benzyl Adenine (50 μM/L and 100 μM/L), salicylic acid (50 μM/L and 100 μM/L), NAA (10 ppm/L and 20 ppm /L), GA3 (250 ppm/L and 500 ppm/L) with one control. Results revealed that treating Salicylic Acid @ 100 μM showed significant increase in the length of basal (10.22 cm) and upper bud (8.37 cm), diameter of basal (5.81 cm) and upper bud (4.65 cm), spike weight (113.89 g), diameter of basal (19.93 cm) and upper flower (16.91 cm), vase life (16.00 days) and water uptake (143.90 ml).
