A research entitled “Influence of time and intensity of pruning on growth, flowering and postharvest performance of cut rose cv. Super Tata (Rosa hybrida)” was undertaken with the objective to determine the optimum time and intensity of rose pruning for efficient growth, yield and quality of cut flowers. The field work was carried out during July 2008 to April 2009 in rose farm of Chitwan, Nepal. Postharvest study was conducted at the central laboratory of IAAS, Nepal. Both time and intensity of pruning significantly affected growth, yield and postharvest performance. In Chitwan condition, cut rose growers can prune their rose plants after rainy season to produce cut rose targeting festivals and marriage months leaving 10-12 buds in each plant for quantity and quality of cut flower. From this study, it revealed that highest quality cut flowers can be produced by heavy pruning whereas more quantity can be achieved by light pruning. Sequential pruning can produce rose flowers at desired time.
