Yield for Rose Cultivation in Greenhouse:- Any yield depends on the greenhouse practices and variety. In rose flower cultivation, an average yield of 225-350 stems/sq.m can be obtained. To increase the flower yield, spray BAP 50 to 100 ppm before flowering. Another method of increasing rose flower yield is by burning of saw-dust during winter months in the morning time (6 to 10 am) . This will greatly increase flower yield as well as quality.
