Abstract

The studies on the effect of foliar application of boron and GA3 on fruiting and yield of phalsa was under taken in Horticulture Garden of Department of Horticulture CSAUA&T, Kanpur during 2015-16 and 2016-17.There were 4 levels each of GA3 and Boron i.e., 0,10,20,30 ppm and 0,30,40,50 ppm, respectively tried in a Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. First foliar application of the treatments was given when the flower buds were fully swollen and it was superimposed after three weeks. GA3 in increasing concentrations maximized fruit set, fruit diameters, fruit weight of 100 fruits, volume of fruit and yield per plant significantly during both the years recording 72.01, 72.74%; 0.92, 0.93 cm; 119.04, 123.13g; 1.25, 1.26 cm3 and 5.39, 5.70 kg values, respectively with 30 ppm of GA3 treatment. Similarly, boron also increased these attributes with increasing doses showing 70.02, 70.72; 0.89,0.89; 11.058, 114.38g; 1.24, 1.25 cm3 and 5.13, 5.40 kg. values, respectively. Interactive effect of 30 ppm GA3 and 50 ppm boron improved all the parameters numerically.
