The present experiment was carried out during September 2017 to March 2018 in Departmental Research Field of Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Allahabad. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (RBD), with twelve treatments, replicated thrice. the treatments were T0 (100% RDF(120:240:240g N:P:K), T1 (75% RDF+5 Kg FYM, T2 75% RDF+7 Kg FYM), T3 (75%RDF+1.8 Kg Vermicompost), T4 (75%RDF+1.5Kg FYM), T5 (50%RDF+10.5 Kg FYM), T6 (50%RDF+3.7 Vermicompost), T7 (50%RDF+3 Kg FYM), T8 (25%RDF+15.5 Kg FYM), T9 (25%RDF+5.6 Kg Vermicompost), T10 (25%RDF+10.5 Kg FYM) and T11 (25%RDF+5 Kg FYM+1.8 KG Vermicompost). From the present experiment treatment T8 found best in terms of maximum plant height, plant spread, Number of branches, flowering period, weight of 50 flower bud, Number of flower bud/plant, Yield of flower/plant, Yield of flower/ha and minimum for flower bud initiation, days for flower bud development. In terms of cost benefit ratio maximum Gross Return, Net Return and Cost Benefit ratio was also found in treatment T8 followed by treatment T6 where as minimum was recorded in treatment T0 (Control) in all the parameters.
