Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during year 2014-15 at Banaras Hindu University to find out the effect of gibberellic acid (GA3) and benzyladenine (BA) on the flowering character and post-harvest life of lily cut flowers. Thirteen treatments viz., Single and Double dose of GA3 100 ppm, GA3 150 ppm, GA3 200 ppm, BA 100 ppm, BA 150 ppm, BA 200 ppm and control were replicated three times and laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD). All the flowering characters and vase life of lily flowers were significantly influenced due to various concentrations of GA3 and BA. Results revealed that application of Single dose of GA3 (200 ppm) resulted in maximum number of flower buds per plant and early flowering while plants treated with Single dose of BA 100 ppm had minimum days to colour show of 1st and 3rd bud of lily flower. Maximum diameter and length of pedicle were noted with the application of GA3 100 ppm at Single and Double dose, respectively. Vase life of cut lilies was maximum with the application of Single dose of BA (100 ppm).
