Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out during September 2018 to January 2019 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 T1 (Control), T2 (FYM 1kg/m2), T3 (FYM 750g/m2 + Azotobacter chroococcum 0.3g/plant), T4 (FYM 750g/m2 +Azospirillum lipoferum 0.2g/plant), T5 (FYM 750g/m2 +PSB (Pseudomonas striata) 0.5g/plant), T6 (FYM 500g/m2 +Azotobacter chroococcum 0.3g/plant), T7 (FYM 500g/m2 + Azospirillum lipoferum 0.2g/plant), T8 (FYM 500g/m2 + PSB (Pseudomonas striata) 0.5g/plant), T9 (FYM 750g/m2 +Azotobacter chroococcum 0.3g/plant + Azospirillum lipoferum 0.2g/plant), T10 (FYM 500g/m2 + Azotobacter chroococcum 0.3g/plant + Azospirillum lipoferum 0.2g/plant), T11 (FYM 750g/m2 + Azotobacter chroococcum 0.3g/plant + Azospirillum lipoferum 0.2g/plant + PSB(Pseudomonas striata) 0.5g/plant) and T12 (FYM 500g/m2 + Azotobacter chroococcum 0.3g/plant + Azospirillum lipoferum 0.2g/plant + PSB (Pseudomonas striata) 0.5g/plant m). From the present experiment treatment T11 found best in terms of maximum plant height, Number of leaves, Number of branches, plant spread, Leaf area, Number of flower/plant, Flower diameter, flowering period, Average fresh weight of flower, Yield of flower/ha and earliness in terms of flower bud emergence and days for first flower opening. In terms of cost benefit ratio maximum Gross Return, Net Return and Cost Benefit ratio was found in treatment T2 followed by treatment T5 where as minimum was recorded in treatment T10 (Control).
