Abstract: The experimental farm is situated about 13 Km away from Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India at 30o52¢30² North latitude and 77o11¢30² East longitude. The elevation of the farm is 1260 m above mean sea level which falls under the mid hill zone of Himachal Pradesh. The design applied for statistical analysis was Split Plot Design having two factors with three levels of planting density viz., 100, 120 and 140 cormels/m2 and foliar application of nitrogen (500 ppm) at 0, 3, 5 and 7 days interval respectively. Combined use of these two factors resulted in significant increase of foliar NPK and chlorophyll content of the gladiolus plant under study. Planting density of 100 cormels/m2 planting density in combination with foliar application of nitrogen (500 ppm) at 3 days interval showed highest foliar NPK content.
