The present experiment “Effect of GA3 and Ethrel along with pinching on yield of Marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. Pusa Narangi Gainda” was conducted out at Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur, during rabi 2017-18. The experiment was conducted in Randomised Block Design comprising 7 treatments of 3 levels of GA3 (200, 300, 400 ppm), 3 levels of Ethrel (400, 500, 600 ppm) and replicated in three times. The maximum number of (63.26) flowers per plant, highest flower diameter (6.667 cm.), maximum flower weight (6.03g) and highest yield/plant/ha (226.54 q/ha) were obtained at GA3 400 ppm+ pinching. Hence, on the basis of result obtained from the present investigation it can be concluded that foliar application of GA3 400 ppm at 15 DAT and 30 DAT was found to play a major role in increasing yield and yield attributive characteristics of marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. Pusa Narangi Gainda.
