Abstract:
The present study entitled, “Effect of NPK on plant growth, flower yield, and flower quality of Jasminum nitidum cv. CO-1(Star Jasmine)” was conducted in Department of Horticulture, Naini Agriculture Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj during 2020-21 to evaluate the plant growth, flower yield and flower quality of Star Jasmine with different treatment combinations of NPK and to find out the most suitable treatment under agro climatic conditions of Prayagraj region. The experiment comprised of 12 treatments, T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 T7 T8 T9 T10 T11 T12 and was laid in Randomized Block Design (RBD) and replicated thrice. The results revealed Maximum Plant Height (36.33cm), Maximum Plant Spread (42.33cm2), Maximum No. of Branches (21.67), Maximum No. of Leaves per Plant (429.67), Days to Opening of 1st Flower (12.00), Maximum No. of Flowers per Plant (254.33), Flower Diameter (39.67mm), Maximum Flowering Yield per Plant (260.67g), Flower Yield/ha (2.23 t/ha), Maximum Gross Return (Rs.46,800), Net Return (-2,84,935) and B: C Ratio (0.85:1).
Based on the above discussion, it is concluded that treatment T7 N:P:K (110:110:110 g/plant) was found to be the best treatment as compared to others which significantly increased the plant growth and yield of Jasmine (Jasminum nitidum) cv. CO-1 (Star Jasmine).
