Abstract:
A field trial experiment was laid out at Andro Research Farm of Central Agricultural University, Imphal, Manipur during 2016-17. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with 11 treatments and replicated thrice. The results generated from the experiment showed that the treatment 50 per cent N (Urea) + 50 per cent N (Vermicompost) + Azospirillum gave the maximum plant height (85 cm), plant girth (1.28 cm), plant spread (48.25 cm), number of branches per plant (13.89), diameter of flowers (7.93 cm), number of flowers per plant (19.00), fresh weight of a single flower (8.93 g) and duration of flowering (60.67 days) in African marigold which was followed by the application of 50 per cent N (Urea) + 50 per cent N (FYM) + Azospirillum. However, the least number of days for the first flower bud emergence (33.67 DAT) was observed in the treatment application of 50 per cent N (Urea) + 50 per cent N (Vermicompost) + Azospirillum. The application of 50 per cent N (Urea) + 50 per cent N (Vermicompost) + Azospirillum gave the maximum yield of flowers per plant (174.51 g/plant), yield of flowers per hectare (11295.94 kg/ha) and dry matter production (29.76 g/plant).
