Abstract: The trial was conducted with the view of producing quality planting material in glory lily since the cost of planting material (tubers) is very high and tubers are sourced only from wild leading to serious depletion of genetic resources. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 8 treatments and three replications, with two levels of FYM (10 and 25 t ha-1) and three levels of recommended dose (125:50:75 kg of NPK ha-1) of fertilizers (50, 75 and 100 per cent levels) and one organic treatment viz., vermicompost 2 t ha-1 + Humic acid (5 kg ha-1). Observations were made on various morphological, biochemical and tuber yield attributes during various stages of growth. Fertilizer level of 25 t FYM /ha +100 % RDF registered higher plant height, tuber characters and biochemical constituent in tuber which was on par with 25 t FYM /ha +75 % RDF and 10 t FYM /ha +100 % RDF over the control. The methodology standardized will reduce the pressure of natural collections and will help the species to survive in wild.
