Abstract


The present investigation was conducted atHorticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Gochar Mahavidyalya,Rampur Maniharan, during the year 2010-2011. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design, consisting of 9 treatments with control. Two levels of Azospirillum, i.e.1.5kg/ha and 2kg/ha and two levels of nitrogen, i.e. 100 Kg/ha and 150 kg/ha with one control were taken. All growth and flowering attributes are significantly affected with the application of nitrogen and biofertilizer.The maximum plant spread(50.82cm), no. of primary braches /plant(16.93), no. of secondary braches /plant(11.27), flower stalk length(8.58cm), flower diameter (5.56cm), no. of flower/ plant(19.54), weight of 5 flowers(164.32) and earlier flowering (52.48) was recorded at the treatment A2 (Azospirillum 2kg/ha), while the plant height(69.55cm) was recorded under the treatment N2 (nitrogen 150kg/ha) and earlier no. of days taken to seed ripening(107.54) was recorded at A1(Azospirillum 1.5kg/ha) as comparison to individual treatment and control
