Abstract

The present study was under taken in a commercial floriculture farm under protected cultivation with three cultivarsof carnation during July 2010 to February 2011. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with factorialconcept. Harvesting of carnation flower stalk at 10 cm height from the ground level recorded minimum number of days to sprouting of buds than other harvesting heights i.e., 5, 15 and 20 cm height. Days to first flower bud appearance, color break stage and days to harvest was also minimum with harvesting at 10 cm height in cultivars Domingo, Dover and Keiro. And the length of lateral, length of flower stalk and flower, diameter of flower stalk and flower, number of flower stalks per plant, fresh flower weight and vase life was maximum with harvesting 10 cm height than other harvesting heights in cultivar Domingo.
