Abstract

The experiment on Effect of foliar application of micronutrients on growth and flower production of Gerbera under protected condition was carried out during the year 2015-16. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replications comprising thirteen levels of micronutrients. Growth, flowering, yield and quality attributes influenced by different levels of micronutrients, viz Plant height, number of leaves per plant, plant spread, stalk length, stalk thickness, flower diameter, number of flower per plant, vase life significantly highest when the micronutrients was applied at level of [(ZnSO4 (0.2%) + MnSO4 (0.2%) + FeSO4 (0.1%)].
