Flowers during Winter Season
Happiness held is a seed, happiness shared is a flower. Something similar happens with flowers that bloom in winter. Balanced use of fertilizers is very essential to get good yield of flowers. With its use, the fertility of the field is maintained, as well as the growth of the plants is also good.
What is balanced compost?
Depending on the soil, crop and environment of a particular place, the main nutrients like Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potash are given in the right amount in the right proportion at the right time, so that maximum production can be taken. On the basis of soil test, proper quantity of fertilizer is determined. Read this article to know the complete details about the general recommended amount of manure-fertilizer to be supplied to flowers.
Marigold cultivation can be done commercially throughout the year. Marigold occupies a prominent place among annual flowers, its flowers are used for garlands, puja bouquets, decorations, weddings, religious functions, festivals and receptions. Good income can be earned by selling its flowers in festivals and weddings. Oil is also obtained from its flowers.
In general, to get a good production of flowers, in addition to 10-15 tons of cow dung manure, 100 kg nitrogen, 80-100 kg phosphorus and 80-100 kg potassium per hectare is required at the time of first plowing of cow dung. The entire quantity of phosphorus and potassium is added to the soil at the time of last plowing of the field, while half the quantity of nitrogen is added to the plant after 25.30.
The name gladiolus is derived from the Latin word gladius meaning sword, because of the sword-like shape of its leaves. Its tuber is also called the queen of flowers.
Manures and fertilizers are of great importance in gladiolus, as a lack of sufficient nutrients in the soil leads to reduced flower yield and quality, as well as longer preparation times. Therefore, at the time of first ploughing, fully rotten cow dung manure at the rate of 50 quintals per hectare should be mixed well in the field. Cow dung should be put in the field only after it is completely rotten. Top dressing of urea is better after light irrigation. In this way, the use of manure and fertilizers not only gives good quality flowers, but also increases the size and number of tubers formed in the roots of the plants.
Guldaudi is also known as Seventy and Chandramalika. There is so much diversity in the texture, shape, type and color of chrysanthemum flowers that there is hardly any other flower. Its flower does not have fragrance and its flowering time is also very less. Yet in popularity it is second only to the rose. It is mainly cultivated on a commercial scale for the production of cut (with petioles) and loose (without petioles) flowers. The cut flowers are used for table decoration, bouquet making, interior decoration and for making loose flower garlands, veni and gajra.
For one hectare area, 100-150 kg nitrogen, 90-100 kg phosphorus and 100-150 kg potassium should be given along with 20-25 tonnes of compost or cow dung. Cow dung manure should be mixed in the soil at the time of field preparation. Mix 2/3 quantity of Nitrogen and full quantity of Potash in the soil at the time of planting. The remaining quantity of Nitrogen should be given after 40 days of sowing or after budding.
The tuber is sold in the market in both the form of cut flowers and loose flowers. Used as raw material for perfume industry. Its flowers remain fresh for a long time and can be sent over long distances without spoiling. The amount of nutrients required for tuber crop should be decided only after soil test. Nutrients should be given to the tubers in a balanced quantity. Nitrogen should not be used in excess under any circumstances.
Full quantity of phosphorus should be applied in the field at the time of final preparation. While nitrogen and potassium should be divided into three parts. First tuber at the time of planting, second tuber 30 days after planting and third tuber 90 days after planting. If retro crop is taken then the quantity of fertilizers should be used in the second year also.
Rose farming is very profitable and easily grown. Roses are grown for cut flower rose water, rose oil, gulkand, perfume garlands, tulips, for use in temples and other religious functions.
After sorting, 10 kg rotten cow dung should be mixed in the soil and sorting should be done to make good quality flowers. After one week of fertilization, when new shoots start sprouting, 200 grams of neem cake, 100 grams of bone powder and 50 grams of chemical fertilizers should be given per plant, the ratio of the mixture should be two proportions i.e. one urea, superphosphate, potash.
