Abstract:

An experiment entitled “Effect of Calcium nitrate on growth and rhizome production in Alstroemeria (Alstroemeria hybrida L.) during spring and summer seasons ” was conducted to evaluate the response of three cultivars of Alstroemeria  namely Alladin, Pluto and New Pink  to three concentrations ( 0, 1 and 1.5%) and  two frequency of applications (10, 20 days) of Calcium nitrate during spring and summer seasons of Kashmir valley. Eighteen different treatment combinations were replicated thrice in a Randomized Completely Block Design. The investigation revealed that Calcium nitrate @ 1.5%   at 10 days frequency recorded maximum number of vegetative shoots, shoot diameter, shoot length, leaf number, chlorophyll content, number of rhizomes, fresh weight of rhizome cluster/plant, dry weight of rhizome cluster/plant, rhizome diameter, number of new storage roots and propagation coefficient in all three varieties. Shoot and rhizome production was found maximum in New pink variety. Production of rhizomes was higher during spring in all the three cultivars. Maximum rhizome production was obtained in New pink cultivar with application of 1.5% CaN at 10 days interval during spring season.
