Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of Micronutrients on Growth, Flower Yield and Flower Quality of Petunia (Petunia hybrida) cv. Purple star” was carried out during 2019-2020 at research field of Department of Horticulture, Allahabad School of agriculture, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The experiment included ten treatments and three replications. Treatment details were T0 - (Control), T1 - (ZNSO4 @ 0.2%), T2 -(ZNSO4@0.4%),T3-(ZNSO4 @ 0.6%),T4-(FESO4@ 0.2%),T5 - (FESO4 @ 0.4%), T6 - (FESO4 @ 0.6%),T7- (CUSO4 @ 0.2%),T8-(CUSO4 @ 0.4%),T9-(CUSO4 @ 0.6%).It was concluded that application of ZNSO4 @0.6% in treatment T3 was found to be superior on plant height (23.95 cm), plant spread (72.41 cm), number of branches (22.13), number of leaves (561.75), number of days required for 1st bud emergence from transplanting (21.92), number of days required for 1st flower opening (30.83), and application of ZNSO4 @0.2% in treatment T1 found best in terms of flower stalk length (6.78 cm), and flower length (7.70 cm) and application of ZNSO4@0.6% in Treatment T3 found superior in terms of fresh weight of flower (1.16 g), dry weight of flower (0.89 g), number of flowers per plant (106.47), flower yield per plant (122.35 g), flower yield per plot (489.40 g), flower yield per hectare (4.89 t) was observed as compared to T0- Control.
