Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on tomato (cv. Utkal Pallavi) during the winter season of 2018-19, in order to evaluate the performance of new commercial nano-based, water soluble, foliar fertilizer in relation to commonly adopted water soluble foliar fertilizer with regard to vegetative growth. The experiment was laid out in the randomized block design with 8 treatments and 3 replications. Results revealed that the treatment T6 (Pramukh foliar spray@ 5g/l + RDF) was found to be the best with respect to the characters branches/plant, plant spread (E-W & N-S), width of leaf and leaf area. T8 was maximum with respect to plant height, number of leaves/plant and length of leaf. As regards plant girth, T4 (Pramukh foliar spray @ 3g/l + RDF) was superior followed by T8 (Control) and T6 (Pramukh foliar spray @ 5g/l + RDF).
