PS Gaikwad, Tambe TB, Gaonkar YA

The field study was carried out on the field of Horticulture (pomology) VNMKV, Parbhani. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with Ten treatments viz., T1 NAA (40 ppm) + Boron (0.3%), T2 NAA (40 ppm) + CaCl2 (1.5%), T3 NAA (40 ppm) + ZnSO4 (0.2%), T4 GA3 (75 ppm) + Boron (0.3%), T5 GA3 (75 ppm) + CaCl2(1.5%), T6 GA3 (75 ppm) + ZnSO4 (0.2%), T7 2,4-D (20 ppm) + Boron (0.3%), T8 2,4-D (20 ppm) + CaCl2 (1.5%),T9 2,4-D (20 ppm) + ZnSO4 (0.2%), T10 control with three replications. The observation on quality of pomegranate fruits were superior in treatment T4 i.e. spraying of GA3 (75 ppm) + Boron (0.3%) more as compared to control. Close analysis of the present investigation revealed that the foliar application of alone or in combination with plant growth regulators and chemicals were able to improve the quality characters viz, Sugars, total soluble solid, juice percentage and anthocynine of pomegranate cv. Bhagwa it helps to improve the quality and acceptability of pomegranate.
