    EFFECT OF METHYL JASMONATE AND SALICYLIC ACID ON GROWTH, FLOWERING AND CORM PRODUCTION OF GLADIOLUS (Gladiolus hybridus HORT.) cv. AMERICAN BEAUTY

    A field experiment entitled “Effect of Methyl Jasmonate and Salicylic acid on Growth, Flowering and Corm Production in Gladiolus (Gladiolus hybridus Hort.) cv. American Beauty” was conducted during Rabi season, 2020-21 at the Department of Floriculture and Landscaping, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar, Rajasthan. The experiment consisting 9 treatments having two growth regulators viz. Methyl Jasmonate and Salicylic acid each (Foliar spray of sole concentration) and laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Among the sole concentration of Methyl Jasmonate and Salicylic acid treatment T2 (MeJA-100 ppm) was found most effective in the increasing plant height (110.67 cm), number of leaves (12.37), leaf length (44.47 cm), main collar diameter (3.60 cm), plant spread in East -West direction (44.67 cm), internodal length (5.10 cm), spike length (82.75 cm), rachis length (42.68 cm) and number of cormels per plant (24.33). The earliest spike emergence (57.67 days), minimum days for first floret opening (65.67 days) floret diameter (9.63 cm) and number of spikes per plant (2.40) and corm diameter (5.50 cm) were recorded under T1 (MeJA-50 ppm). The maximum number of florets per spike (16.33), number of corms per plant (2.23), weight of corm per plant (137.00 g), weight of corm per plot (2.47 Kg), chlorophyll content (3.53 mg/g), proline content (1.47 μg/g), vase life (13.33 days) and Anthocyanin content (0.30 mg/g) were noticed under T4 (Methyl Jasmonate -200ppm) treatment. The application of Salicylic acid through foliar spray the treatment, T8 (SA-200 ppm) resulted in the maximum plant height (109.20 cm), highest number of leaves (11.67), highest leaf length (42.67 cm), highest main collar diameter (3.03 cm), maximum plant spread in East -West direction (42.67 cm), maximum internodal length (5.03 cm), highest spike length (80.88 cm), maximum rachis length (41.05 cm), maximum number of corms per plant (2.53), highest number of corms per square meter (18.33), highest weight ofcorm per plant (147.33g ), highest weight of corm per plot (3.03 Kg), maximum chlorophyll content (3.59 mg/g), maximum proline content (1.49 μg/g), highest vase life (14.67 days) and highest Anthocyanin content (0.31 mg/g). The earliest spike emergence (58.00 day), first floret opening (67.33 days), maximum floret diameter (9.03cm), highest number of spike per plant (2.13), highest number of spike per quare meter (17.00), maximum diameter of corm (6.03 cm), maximum number of cormels per plant (26.33) and maximum number of cormels per square meter (204.00) were recorded under T5 (Salicylic acid -50 ppm) treatment.
