Kolkata local variety of marigold (Tagetes erecta) was evaluated at Gadawa-4 Gangaparaspur, Dang district of Nepal from (July-November) to estimate the effect of pinching and different dozes of nitrogen (0kg/ha, 50kg/ha, 100kg/ha, 150kg/ha.) on various parameters of marigold.
Among pinching and non-pinching, maximum plant height (89.7cm) was observed in non- pinching, maximum number of primary branches (17.1 cm) and least days to 50 percent flowering (61.58 days) with pinching, the significant diameter of flower (4.29), fresh weight of flower (4.32) was observed with non- pinching and best number of flower (60.66), best yield per plant (237.49gm) and best yield per hectare (9.89tones) was observed with pinching practices. The best plant height (92.2cm) was observed at 150kg/ha of nitrogen dose. Remaining all other parameters showed non-significant relationship with different doses of nitrogen except yield per plant and yield per hectare. The significant yield per plant (238.12 gm) and significant yield per hectare (9.91 tones) was observed at nitrogen dose of 50kg/ha. Interaction among pinching and different doses of nitrogen showed non-significant relationship for all parameters.
