An experiment on “Effect of different photoselective shade nets on growth and yield of fern” was carried out at KRC college of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Gokak, Karnataka during 2018-19. The result revealed that, three fern species grown under grey shade nets performed better with respect to plant height, plant spread, number of fronds per plant, leaf area, stipe length and girth. Higher yield and quality in terms of number of cut leaves per plant (146.25), per square meter (1083.69), fresh weight of cut leaves per plant (358.39 g), per square meter (2655.66 g) and vase life (11.78 days) was recorded in grey shade net. Among different species, higher cumulative number of cut fronds per plant (144.45) and per m2 (1083.69), fresh weight of cut cladophyll per plant (281.00g) and per m2 (2084.00 g) was recorded in Nephrolepis exaltata cv. Aurea followed by Nephrolepis exaltata cv. Bostoniensis. Higher vase life was recorded in Nephrolepis exaltata cv. Bostoniensis (11.00 days) followed by Nephrolepis exaltata cv. Aurea (9.07).
