The present study was conducted to investigate the role of calcium, potassium, boron and zinc on yield and quality of mango cv. Langra. The treatments includes CaCl2 4%, CaCl2 6%, CaCl28%, K2SO4 1.0%, K2SO41.5%, K2SO4 2.0%, Borax 1.0%, Borax 1.5%), Borax 2.0%, ZnSO4 0.2%, ZnSO4 0.4%, ZnSO4 0.8%) and T13 control. Spraying was done 30 days before anticipated day of harvesting. The result revealed that among all the treatments borax 2 % was most effective in increasing fruit weight, pulp weight, and pulp percentage. Whereas CaCl2 4.0% had given highestyield/plant with better fruit quality attributes. On the other hand number of fruits per plant and fruit quality parameters such as TSS, TSS: acid ratio, sugars, total carotenoids, ascorbic acid content, total phenolics was highest in borax 1%. Thus, present study concluded that borax 1% and CaCl2 4% was most efficient in enhancing yield and yield attributes as well as in retaining the quality of mango fruits.
