Abstract

An effort was made to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on the growth and flowering parameters of marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. Pusa Narangi Gainda at the Horticultural Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Chaudhary Charan Singh University Campus, Meerut (U.P.). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with ten treatments replicated thrice. The treatments comprised of NPK, vermicompost and Azotobacter in different combinations and control (no fertilizers). The maximum plant height (67.14 cm), no. of primary branches/plant (16.54), flower diameter (6.27 cm), fresh weight/flower (8.70 g) and flower yield (212.52 q/ha) were recorded under the combined application of 100% NPK + Azotobacter. While, maximum number of secondary branch/plant (44.28), spread of plant (45.41 cm), stem diameter (1.66 cm) and number of flower/plant (63.15) were recorded under the 100% Vermicompost + Azotobacter (5.0 kg/ha) treatment.
