Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted at Horticultural Research Cum Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, IGKV, Raipur, Chhattisgarh, during Kharif season of 2020-21. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with three replication having 10 treatment combinations of different size of pots with six pots per treatments. The treatments consisted of ten different sizes of pots viz., 15 cm, 17 cm, 19 cm, 21 cm, 23 cm, 25 cm, 27 cm, 29 cm, 31 cm and 33 cm diameter pots. The results of the study indicated that growth parameters viz., plant height (128.67 cm), leaf length (29.53 cm), leaf breadth (11.00 cm), stem girth (2.70 cm) were obtained significantly maximum in treatment T10 (33 cm diameter pots). Whereas, the rhizome parameters viz., number of rhizome per plant (3.50), rhizome/shoot ratio (0.64), length of rhizomes (20.75 cm), girth of rhizomes (12.75 cm), inter nodal length of rhizome (3.60 cm), fresh weight of rhizomes (375.78 g), dry weight of rhizomes (267.80 g), weight of rhizome per plant (352.19 g) was recorded significantly maximum with treatment T10 (33 cm diameter pots). Number of tillers plant-1 (4.00) and number of leaves plant-1 (55.00) was recorded significant in treatment T6 (25 cm diameter pots), number of leaves tillers-1 (20.14) was recorded significant in treatment T5 (23 cm diameter pots), leaf area index (4.90) was recorded minimum in treatment T4 (21 cm diameter pots). It may be concluded that among all the treatment T10 (33 cm diameter pots) was found significantly superior in all over the treatments.
