Abstract:
A field investigation was carried out at Floriculture Unit, Department of Horticulture, Dr. PDKV, Akola during the years, 2016-17 and 2017-18 in Randomized Block Design to study the “Performance of marigold rooted cuttings on yield and quality transplanted from different growing media”. The treatments comprised of twelve different propagating medias viz. soil, sand, vermicompost, FYM, cocopeat, soil + sand (1:1), soil+ vermicompost (1:1), soil + FYM (1:1), sand + vermicompost (1:1), sand + FYM (1:1), soil + sand + vermicompost (1:1:1) and soil + sand + FYM (1:1:1) with three replications. The results of the experiment revealed that, performance of transplanted marigold plants in respect of yield parameters viz. weight of flowers plant-1, number of flowers plant-1,flower yield plant-1, plot-1and ha-1 were noticed maximum in the plants obtained from the vermicompost media. In respect of quality parameters, essential oil content and yield of xanthophyll obtained from different growing medias were found statistically non significant during both the years of the experimentation.
