The experiment was conducted at Precision Farming Development Centre (PFDC) of the Department of Horticulture, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar to find out optimum irrigation level and suitable plant density for better establishment and growth of gladiolus during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17. Per cent sprouting of corms was increased successively with increase in irrigation levels over flood irrigation but in case of plant density and their interaction with irrigation levels had failed to produce any significant effect on per cent sprouting of gladiolus. Number of leaves per plant were found maximum with highest irrigation level (I5), whereas minimum leaves per plant were recorded with control treatment (flood irrigation).In case of plant density, the maximum number of leaves were counted in plant density of 20 plants/m2, whereas, minimum number of leaves per plant were counted with 32 plants/m2. Corm sprouting was not significantly influenced by different irrigation levels and plant density.
Key words: Gladiolus, Per cent sprouting, Irrigation level, CPE, Plant density.
