Abstract:
Among the cut flowers, Gerbera is the one of the important cut flower in the international flower market. An experiment entitled “Response of micronutrients on plant growth and sucker production of various genotypes of Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii L.) under naturally ventilated polhouse” was conducted at Floriculture research field, Department of Horticulture, Allahabad. During the year 2014-2015, the experiment was laid out in a two factors Randomized Block Design having 15 treatments with three replications. The 15 treatments comprised of five various genotypes of Gerbera including three levels of three micronutrients combination (Fe+Zn+Mn). The result revealed that Venizia was found to be best among five varieties, it shows better performance in terms of plant growth and sucker production i.e. maximum plant height (28.14 cm), plant spread (52.38 cm) and number of Suckers (6.64). Daphane cultivar shows maximum number of leaves (32.82). Among micronutrients combination, 0.2% of Fe+Zn+Mn shows superior over all other interacting combination in relation to plant growth and sucker production and also cost benefit ratio was registered in Venizia (1:2.31).
