Effect of different levels of saline irrigation water on growth and yield of spider lily cv local
Author(s): MP Ahir and Alka Singh
Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted on spider lily cv. Local during 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 at Department of floriculture, Aspee College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. Spider lily cv Local 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. Different levels of salinity were significantly reduced growth and yield parameters of spider lily. The growth parameters exhibited significantly reduced above 8.0 dSm-1 salinity level in spider lily plants. Flowers per stalk, flower stalks per plant, flower yield and bulbs per plant were prominently decreased above 8.0 dSm-1 salinity level. In case of leaf chlorophyll content was also decreased with increase in salinity level. Based on results, Spider lily cv. Local gives good flower yield up to 8.0 dSm-1 salinity of irrigation water with overall good plant growth and flowering. Thus, spider lily cv. Local has been found to be moderately salt tolerant crop.
