Cite article:- Kumar* Jitendra, Singh Tapendra, Pal Krishan (2024). EFFECT OF GA3 AND VAM ON GROWTH AND FLOWERING IN TUBEROSE (POLIANTHES TUBEROSA L.) CV. DOUBLE. Agricultural Science Digest. 31(4): 289 - 292. doi: .
An attempt has been made to study the effect of GA3 and VAM on growth and flowering parameters in tuberose cv. Double. The experiment was conducted consisting three levels of GA3 (@ 50 ppm, 100 ppm and 150 ppm), one level of VAM (VAM @ 2 g/m2). There were eight treatment combinations, replicated thrice and laid out in factorial randomized block design. Results revealed that all treatments performed better than control. Among all the treatments G3V1 (GA3 @ 150 ppm + VAM @ 2 g/m2) gave better performance in all growth and flowering parameters studied.
