Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during rabi season of 2014-15. The main aim of experiment was to enhance the production of onion through assess the impact of salicylic acid. Plant height (68.98cm), No. leaves (8.35), collor thickness (15.56 mm), avg. bulb weight (69.32 gm), equatorial (62.72 mm) and polar (54.04 mm) diameter, lower % of bolters (3.06 %) and doubles (2.50 %) were recorded in foliar application of SA at 30 days after sowing and second spraying at 30 days after transplanting and third spray at 45 days after transplanting and marketable yield (39.22 t/ha) and total yield (41.75 t/ha) were recorded in the same treatment then untreated control yield (31.81 t/ha) and total yield (34.10 t/ha). It was observed that foliar application of SA at 30 days after sowing and second spraying at 30 days after transplanting and third spray at 45 days after transplanting exhibited the best growth and yield.
