Author(s): MP Ahir, Alka Singh and SJ Patil
Abstract: During 2013-2014 and 2014-2015, tuberose cv Prajwal was irrigated with water of different salinity levels (2.0, 4.0, 6.0, 8.0, 10.0 and 12.0) along with control (best available water) to evaluated for growth and yield parameters at Department of floriculture, Aspee College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. Different levels of salinity were significantly reduced growth and yield parameters.Thegrowthparametersexhibitedsignificantlyreducedtuberoseplantgrowthabove4.0dSm-1 salinity level. Flower yield, bulbs per plant, bulblets per plant were prominently decreased above 4.0 dSm-1 salinity level. In case of leaf chlorophyll content was also decreased with increase in salinity level. Based on results, tuberose cv Prajwal was found moderate salinity sensitive flower crop.
