Abstract:
The field experiment was carried out at Horticulture section, Rural Institute, Pipri-Wardha (Maharashtra), India; with objective to find out effect of planting time and pinching on growth of annual chrysanthemum. Treatments comprising five planting times viz. 15th September, 1st October, 15th October, 1st November and 15th November and four pinching treatments viz. No pinching, pinching at 30 DAT, pinching at 45 DAT and pinching at 30 and 45 DAT during the year 2010-11 and 2011-12. Among the planting times, 15th October planting resulted in significantly maximum plant height, number of branches per plant and diameter of main stem at 60, 75 and 90 days after planting, spread of plant at 50% flowering, biomass of plant (fresh) and biomass of plant (dry). Among the pinching treatments, control treatment resulted in significantly maximum plantheight at 45, 60, 75 and 90 days after planting. Significantly maximum number of branches per plant was noticed in single pinching at 30 days at 60, 75 and 90 days after planting and also maximum spread of the plant, biomass of plant (fresh) and biomass of plant (dry), whereas more diameter of main stem was recorded in double pinching at 30 and 45 days after transplanting at 45, 60, 75 and 90 days after transplanting.
