Author(s): Vaishali Patel, Patel GD, Desai KD, Maitri Desai and Unnati Patel

Abstract: An experiment was conducted during 2015- 16 to study the INM in African Marigold at ASPEE Collage of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. An experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications and ten treatments. Among all treatments, T10 (FYM @ 5 t/ha + 100% RDF (150:100:100 kg NPK/ ha) + Azotobacter + PSB + KMB + 1% foliar spray of NAUROJI Novel organic liquid fertilizer) obtained the maximum plant height (69.89 cm) and plant spread (60.77 cm N-S and 48.73 cm E-W direction) were observed during 4th month after transplanting. Moreover minimum days taken to 50% flower bud initiation (48.17 days), where as maximum flower diameter (6.73 cm), No. of flowers per plant (84.20), flower yield per plot (5.77 kg) and per ha (10.02 t), and insitu flower longevity (7.17 days) were also noted higher in treatment T10 (FYM @ 5 t/ha + 100% RDF (150:100:100 kg NPK/ ha) + Azotobacter + PSB + KMB + 1% foliar spray of NAUROJI Novel organic liquid fertilizer).
