Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Research Farm-I of the Department of Horticulture, School of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (A Central University), Vidya- Vihar, Rae Bareli Road, Lucknow-226025 (UP), during the Rabi season of 2020-21 from the last week December to mid March. The experimental design was laid down in Randomized Block Design and replicated thrice having 10 (ten) treatments in each replication. The maximum height of marigold plant (29.13 cm and 27.72 cm) at 30 DAP, (60.34 cm and 55.32 cm) at 60 DAP, (75.24 cm and 71.46 cm) at 90 DAP, The highest number of branches per plant (7.65 and 7.55) at 30 DAP, (11.57 and 11.44) at 60 DAP, (45.28 and 43.36) at 90 DAP, The maximum spread marigold plant (49.4 and 46.73). The maximum shelf life of flower in LDPE (11.15 and 10.62 days), in silver foil (9.95 and 9. 88 days), in small trays (9.38 and 9.25 days), in white paper begs (9.15 and 9.08 days), whereas, the treatment T3 was showed the best results on vegetative growth characters of marigold.
