Abstract:

A field study was carried out in the research field at College of Horticulture, Hiriyur, Karnataka during 2019-2020 to know the effect of foliar application of potassium on quality parameters of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) cv. Bhagwa. The experiment comprised of thirteen treatments laid out in a randomized block design and replicated thrice. The foliar application of different potassium sources was carried out thrice as first spray at the time of flowering, second spray at forty days after flowering and third spray at forty days after the second spray. The results revealed that the maximum TSS (16.400Brix), sugar: acid ratio (35.69), reducing sugars (14.51 %), non-reducing sugars (1.55 %), total sugars (16.14 %), juice pH (3.94), ascorbic acid (17.73 mg/ 100g FW) and anthocyanin content (8.98 mg/ 100g FW) with less acidity (0.45 %) was recorded in the fruits obtained in plants treated with foliar spray of 3 per cent K2SO4compared to other treatments whereas lower values with higher acidity (0.72 %) was found in the control treatment i.e. water spray.
