Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the “Effect of NAA and boron levels on growth, yield and quality of sprouting broccoli [Brassica oleracea (L.) var. italica Planck]”, during rabi season 2017-18 at Horticulture Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Jaipur). The experiment consisted of sixteen treatment combinations including four NAA (control, NAA @ 100 ppm, NAA @ 200 ppm, and NAA @ 300 ppm) and four boron levels (control, boron @ 0.75 kg/ha, boron @ 1.5 kg/ha and boron @ 2.25 kg/ha) were under taken in randomized block design with three replications. The results of the study clearly indicated that application of NAA @ 300 ppm to the sprouting broccoli significantly increased the weight of primary curd (411.61 g),  number of secondary curds per plant, weight of secondary curd (145.80 g), volume of curd (127.45 cc), yield per plant, yield per plot, yield per ha (165.19 q), net returns ( 263506/ha) and B:C ratio (3.92) as compared to control and found at par to NAA @ 200 ppm. Application of NAA @ 300 ppm days taken to curd formation was found minimum as compared to control. Similarly, boron levels significantly increased the weight of primary curd (384.02 g),  number of secondary curds per plant, weight of secondary curd (135.61 g), volume of curd (125.95 cc), yield per plant, yield per plot, yield per ha (153.94 q), net returns ( 233471/ha) and B:C ratio (3.48) as compared to control and found at par to boron @ 1.5kg/ha. Application of NAA @ 300 ppm days taken to curd formation was found minimum as compared to control.
