Author(s):

Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out to study the effect of plant density on vegetative characters, flowering and corm production in Gladiolus sp. cv. Sancerre at the Experimental Farm of Horticulture Department, CCS HAU, Hisar during 2014-2015. Corms were planted at 30 x 30 cm, 30 x 15 cm, 20 x 20 cm, 20 x 15 cm and 15 x 15 cm spacing. Plant height, number of leaves, length of spike, duration of flowering, number and weight of corms and cormels per plant increased with increase in spacing, however days taken for initiation of spike and for opening of basal floret were significantly decreased with increase in spacing.
