Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2013-14 to study the effect of planting geometry and nitrogen on growth, flowering and yield of chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum coronarium L.) at College of Horticulture & Forestry, Jhalawar (Raj.). The experiment consisted of 16 treatment combinations of four spacings (S1- 30 cm x 30 cm, S2- 30 cm x 45 cm, S3- 45 cm x 45 cm, S4- 45 cm x 60 cm) and four nitrogen levels (N0- 0 kg, N1 - 100 kg, N2 - 150 kg, N3 - 200 kg N/ha). The treatment S N 4 3 (45 cm x 60 cm spacing + N 200 kg/ha) recorded the maximum plant spread (2643.24 cm2), number of primary branches per plant (41.90), number of leaves per plant (1013.20), leaf width (3.85 cm), leaf length (6.34 cm) and duration of flowering (64.33 days), while the treatment S1N3 (30 cm x 30 cm spacing + N 200 kg/ha) had the maximum plant height (92.58 cm), flower yield per plot (11.85 kg) and flower yield per ha (182.87 q). Application of nitrogen at different levels and planting geometries significantly influenced the number of days taken for first flower bud appearance and 50 per cent flowering with the earliest first flower bud appearance (47.33 days) and 50 per cent flowering (64.83 days) at S1 (30 cm x 30 cm spacing). Similarly nitrogen at N0 (N 0 kg/ha) had the earliest first flower bud appearance (46.75 days) and 50 per cent flowering (63.25 days), while nitrogen at N3 (200 kg/ha) had the latest first flower bud appearance (55.33 days) and 50 per cent flowering (69.42 days).
