Flower farming is a rosy business sector in India due to liberalization and globalization of economy. Since its potency in the international market is getting raised year after year, most of the farmers in India switching towards flower cultivation. Considering the above condition growing of cut flowers for export purpose gradually increasing from decades. To achieve good plant health and flower quality an experiment was conducted at COH, Mudigere (UAHS, Shivamogga) during 2016-17. Growth regulators viz., BA, GA3, MH and CCC are applied at monthly intervals to check its effects on plant growth, flower quality and flower yield of Anthurium andreanum var. Tropical. Meanwhile a comprehensive study on Economics of growth regulators application in Anthurium andreanum var. Tropical were analysed by calculating its B:C ratio. The treatment T3-BA @ 750 ppm obtained the highest net income and benefit: cost ratio (₹ 8,07,473.61 and 1:2.89, respectively) compare to other treatments.
Key words: Economics of Anthurium cultivation, BA, GA3, MH, CCC, UAHS
