Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out at experimental field was laid out at Horticulture Research Farm, Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut with seven treatments like GA3 applied with three treatment combination viz. G1 (50 ppm), G2 (100 ppm), G3 (150 ppm) and CCC applied with three treatment combination viz. C1 (1000 ppm), C2 (5000 ppm) and C3 (10000 ppm) and T0 (control). Maximum height of plant, plant spread, diameter of main stem, number of branches and leaves were recorded with 150 ppm concentration of GA3 in comparison to control and lower level of GA3, while minimum plant height and maximum other growth parameters were recorded, under 5000 ppm concentration of CCC. Minimum number of days required for first flower bud appearance was recorded with 100 ppm concentration of GA3 over to control, while maximum number of days required for first flower bud appearance with 5000 ppm concentration of CCC. Minimum number of days required for flowering was recorded, with 100 ppm concentration of GA3 over to control, while maximum number of days required for flowering with 5000 ppm concentration of CCC. Maximum number of flowers per plant, flower stalk length, flower size, flowers yield and shelf life were recorded under the treatment of GA3 150 ppm concentration, followed by 5000 ppm concentration of CCC, while minimum number of flowers was recorded under control.
