Abstract:

The present study was undertaken at Horticulture Research Station, Department of Fruit Science and Horticulture Technology, College of Agriculture, OUAT, BBSR during 2015-16 and 2016-17 to envisage “Effect of pre harvest treatment of gibberellic acid and calcium chloride on bunch weight of Banana (Musa spp.) cv. Grand Naine”. In this experiment fruits were subjected to ten treatments with different concentration of GA3, CaCl2, their combination, control (with water) and replicated thrice, after male bud removal chemicals were applied to the bunch by spraying. In this experiment maximum bunch weight 25.7kg (2015-16), 23.9kg (2016-17), yield 51.42t/ha (2015-16), 45.78t/ha (2016-17), with maximum benefit cost ratio 1.99, 2.21 respectively in plant crop and ratoon crop, was recorded in GA3 @150 ppm and was found significantly superior.
