Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the possible effect of some micro nutrients with different concentration levels as a foliar application on the vegetative growth, quality and yield of F1 hybrid tomato “Shivaji Gold”. The experiment was conducted at Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar Punjab India during 2018. The field experiment was laid in a randomized block design with three replications comparing eleven treatments involving different dose of micronutrients i.e. Boron, Iron, Zinc and absolute control to study the yield and quality parameters following of the experiment. The study revealed that the mixture of B + Fe + Zn @0.4% was found to give highest fruit yield (36.83 t ha-1) as compared to individual micronutrient. This treatment also enhanced the growth, yield and quality attributes viz. plant height, number of flower per plant, number of compound leaf, weight of fruit, yield per plant, ascorbic acid content and TSS. Therefore, micronutrient application is suitable way to enhance the growth, flowering and marketable yield of tomato crop.
