Abstract:
The present experiment was conducted to determine the effect of different mulches on growth and flower yield of African marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) in the Department of Horticulture, AKS University, Sherganj, Satna. The experiment was laid out in simple RBD with three replications and ten treatments. Studies showed significant effect on the height of plant (92.61cm), number of branches per plant (18.31), number of leaves per plant (94.82), first day to bud appearance (47.12 day), stalk length of flower (8.89cm), flower diameter (7.41cm), number of flowers per plant (40.44), weight of flowers (10.46 g), flower yield per plant (423.00g), flower yield per plot (3807.00 g) and flower yield per hectare (38.07 t/ha) shelf life (6.11 days) of flower were produced by the treatment (T4) Silver black polyethylene 200 µm gauge followed by (T6) Paddy straw. Silver black polyethylene 200 µm gauge was the best mulch material for good vegetative as well as reproductive growth and quality in rabi season.
