Abstract

  The present investigation was carried out in the experimental block of the Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Shivamogga, Karnataka during 2018-19 to know the response of microbial consortia at graded levels of N, P, K on flowering, yield and quality of Asiatic lily cut flowers under naturally ventilated poly house (NVPH). The flowering parameters like days taken for flower bud emergence and 50 flowering were found maximum in 75% RDF + Azotobacter croococcum + Aspergillus awamori + Bacillus musilogenesis (23.08 and 47.08 days), whereas days to senescence of flowers in standing plant was found maximum in T14 (14.88 days). Flower quality parameters like length of flower stalk, bud diameter, bud length, petal length, petal breadth, flower diameter (N-S), flower diameter (E-W), no. of florets/spike, no. of florets/m2 were found maximum in 75% RDF + Azotobacter croococcum + Aspergillus awamori + Bacillus musilogenesis (35.69 cm, 23.75 mm, 7.40 cm, 10.27 cm, 5.20 cm, 17.45 cm, 17.09 cm, 5.00 and 46.33, respectively). However, minimum values were observed in the treatment combination of Azotobacter croococcum + Aspergillus awamori + Bacillus musilogenesis without fertilizer application.

Keywords: Azotobacter croococcum; Aspergillus awamori; Bacillus musilogenesis
