Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Effect of FYM, Vermicompost and Cocopeat on Growth and Yield of African Marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) CV. Sirakole” was carried out in form of a field trial at the Agricultural Research Station, Binjhagiri, Chhatabar, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan  (Deemed to be University), Bhubaneswar during 2019-20. The experiment was laid out in R.B.D. with three replications and nine treatments separately. Studies showed significant effect on height of plants before pinching (22.17cm), height of plants after pinching (37.23cm), on number of flowers (66), fresh weight of flower (6g), flower yield per plant (396g), flower yield per plot (1.98kg), flower yield per hectare (33 t/ha), was recorded optimum in treatment with T4 (Soil+ FYM 20 t/ha) under Bhubaneswar agro climatic conditions. Flower diameter was recorded maximum in treatment T8 (Soil+ VC 3 t/ha), i.e., 10.16cm. Optimum results for days until initiation of 1st flower bud, was obtained in treatment T5 (Soil+ FYM 10 t/ha+ CP 16 t/ha) and T9 (Soil+ VC 2t/ha+ CP 16 t/ha). Treatment T9 (Soil+ VC 2t/ha+ CP 16 t/ha) was found to give optimum results for maximum secondary branches (17.66).
