Abstract:

During the Kharif 2017, a field experiment was conducted to study the effect of foliar application of micronutrient mixture on yield and quality parameters of sunflower at MARS, Raichur. Experiment was laid out in Randomized complete block design with three replications and nine treatments. Results revealed that foliar application of Grade I multi micronutrient mixture(Fe-2%, Zn-3%, Mn-1% and B-0.5%) @ 10 ml L-1 + soil application of RDF + Zinc sulphate @ 10 kg ha-1 has recorded highest seed yield (2243.34 kg ha-1), stalk yield (3995kg ha-1, )oil content (35.37  %),  oil yield (793.33 kg ha-1), protein content (17.37 %),protein yield (389 kg ha-1), gross returns (C.79290 ha-1), net returns (C.47740 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.51).Hence it can concluded that foliar application of multi micronutrient mixture was economically feasible.
