Abstract:
A field trial was carried out to quantify the effect of spacing and corm size on growth, flowering and corm production of sword Lily during the year 2018-2019 at Horticultural Research Farm of the Department of Horticulture, AKS University, Satna (M.P.). There were three spacing viz. 25 cm x 10 cm, 25 cm x 20 cm and 25 cm x 30 cm and three corm size viz. 3-4 cm, 4.1 x 5 cm, 5.1 to 6 cm and their interactions replicated three times. The data recorded revealed clearly that corms of 5.1 to 6 cm diameter grown at a spacing of 25 cm x 30 cm produced highest average number of florets of (15.68), diameter of florets (9.96 cm) and number of corms/plant (3.11) and diameter of new corms (6.33) which was at par with spacing of 25cm x 30 cm and corm size of 4.1 to 5 cm.
