Effect of integrated nutrient management on growth, flowering and yield of African marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) Cv. Pusa Basanti Gainda
Keywords:African Marigold, Tagetes erecta L., Vermicompost, FYM and flower, bud, yield
According to the result of the current study, plant height, canopy, stem girth, number of primary branches and total dry matter of the plant at 30 DAT, 60 DAT, 90 DAT were recorded maximum with the application of 100% RDF. The maximum yield parameters, such as a number of flowers per plant, yield/plant, yield/plot and yield/ha., flowering parameters, such as minimum days to first flower bud appearance, 50% flowering, first harvest and maximum flowering duration, i.e., the highest gross return/ha and the net return/ha were recorded highest by the application of 75% RDF + Vermicompost (1.25t/ha).
