The experiment was conducted in Horticulture Garden of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur (U.P.) during the year 2016-2017. The experiment was carried out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with sixteen treatments. The treatments were comprised of combination of four levels of both the micronutrients i.e., Boron (0 %, 0.2 %, 0.3 % and 0.4 %) and Zinc (0 %, 0.4 %, 0.5 % and 0.6 %). Overall, there were sixteen treatment combinations randomly allotted to different plots. Maximum plant height was observed with the application of treatment combination Zn3B0 (98.94 cm) at final harvesting followed by Zn3B3 (98.92 cm) and Zn3B2 (98.87 cm). The results showed that the use of Zn and B at specific concentration in the interactive treatment Zn3B3) considerably increased total yield up to 520.22q/ha
