Abstract: The influence of different doses of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium on gladiolus cv. Jester Gold was studied in a field trial conducted by factorial randomized block design. The effect of nitrogen (20, 40, 60, 80 g/m2) with phosphorus (5,10,20 g/m2 ) and potassium (15,20,25 g/ m2) and control applied to the plants on post-harvest life of cut gladiolus spikes were studied under laboratory conditions. Longevity of first floret was increased by application of N80 P5 g/ m2. A dose N60 K20 and N80 P10g/ m2 was producing bigger first and third fully opened floret, respectively. Application of N80 K20 g/ m2 resulted into maximum fully opened florets and total florets/spike in the vases. Effective useful life, vase-life, water uptake on third day and at senescence in the vase was increased by the use of N60P20g/ m2. A fertilizer dose of N80P20g/ m2 resulted into maximum increment of spike length at senescence, fresh weight of spike at harvest, at third and fifth day in the vase.
