Author(s): MK Mahadik, SR Dalal, SM Wararkar and UH Patil
Abstract: A field investigation entitled "dry matter production and nutrients composition of chrysanthemum in relation to integrated nutrient management." was carried out at Floriculture Unit, Department of Horticulture, Dr. P.D.K.V., Akola. In which application of biofertilizers (i.e. Azotobactor and PSB @ 5 kg ha-1)and 50% RDF (150:100:100 kg ha-1 of NPK) + 10 t ha-1 VC (50% N through VC) recorded significantly maximum dry matter production and nutrient composition (both macro viz., nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium as well as micro viz., zinc, copper, iron and manganese) of chrysanthemum plants.
