Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Standardization of Protected Condition for Quality Flower Production of Oriental Lily” was conduct at Model Floriculture Center of G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar during the year 2016-17 and 2017-18. The experiment was layout in completely randomized design with two treatments and fifteen replications under polyhouse and shade net conditions. The vegetative characters like plant height at 60 days after bulb sprouting, fresh weight of plant, stem & leaves, dry weight of plant, stem & leaves were record superior under shade net house conditions. Most of the flowering attributes like number of buds per plant, duration to bud initiation and spike harvest, length and width of basal and upper bud, diameter of basal and upper flower as well as early spike harvesting were found superior under polyhouse conditions as compared to shade net house conditions. The physiological traits like Chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b & total chlorophyll (mg/g fresh weight), nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content in leaves were found maximum under polyhouse conditions as compared to shade net house conditions. So, based on two year data as well as pooled data, polyhouse conditions is recommended for early flower production with good flower quality of oriental lily cv. White Cup.
