Effect of Foliar Spraying of Growth Regulators and Biostimulants on Growth, Physiology and Yield of Leafy Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.)

Authors : C. Krishnamoorthy and G. Madhuraj

Abstract: An experiment was conducted at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, India during 2015 with an objective of studying the effect of growth regulators and biostimulants on growth, physiology and yield in leafy coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.). The experiment was laid out in a Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with sixteen treatments replicated thrice. The results revealed that the growth parameters like plant height (19.50 and 30.60 cm), number of primary branches (5.90 and 12.83), number of leaves (20.12 and 43.82) and physiological parameters like total chlorophyll content (2.350 and 2.470 mg g–1), leaf area (32.73 and 52.15 cm2), leaf area index (0.073 and 0.156) and leaf area duration (0.47 and 1.15 days) at 35 and 45th Days After Sowing (DAS) were recorded highest in the treatment Combinations of Variety (CO CR-4) + Triacontanol 1 mL L–1 at 20, 30 and 40 days after sowing. The same combination recorded the highest herbage yield (3751 kg ha–1) when compared to other treatments.
