Effect of spacing and bulb size on cut flower production of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa Linn.)



Effect of spacing and bulb size on cut flower production of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa Linn.)



Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 30(2): 229-230



A field trial was conducted in Maharashtra, India during, 2001-02 to obtain a better quality of flowers and improve the cultivation practices of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa). Treatments comprised: 2 cultivars (Local Single and Shringar), 3 spacings (30x20 cm, 30x30 cm and 30x40 cm) and 2 bulb sizes (1.5- to 2.5-cm and 2.6- to 3.5-cm). Shringar had earlier sprouting and flowering, higher number of leaves per plant and longer vase life than Local Single.
