Abstract:

The experiment comprising of eleven treatments of nutrients and growth regulator was conducted on seven years old plants at Experimental Orchard of the Department of Horticulture, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during the year 2019-20 to study the effect of urea, ZnSO4 and NAA on fruit quality of pomegranate. The data were recorded on total soluble solids (B⁰), total sugars (%), reducing sugars (%), non reducing sugars (%), acidity (%), aril (%), peel (%), juice (%), anthocyanin content (mg/100g) and fruit colour. The recorded data were subjected to statistical analysis using RBD. The result of the experiment indicates that the foliar application of urea, ZnSO4, and NAA had a significantly positive effect on most of the recorded parameters. The maximum potential of pomegranate plants in respect of fruit TSS (14.6 %), total sugars (12.80 %), reducing sugar (10.90 %), non reducing sugars (1.90 %), aril (61.8%), juice (35.2 %), anthocyanin content (15.42 mg/100 g), fruit colour (4.00 visual scored) was exploited to a maximum level and acidity (0.68 %), peel (38.2 %) to a minimum level with foliar application of urea 1.0% + ZnSO4 0.5%.
