Studies on influence of pinching/suppression of terminal buds and foliar nutrition in dhaincha revealed that pods plant-1, seed yield plant-1 and seed yield ha-1 was significantly influenced by both pinching and foliar sprays. The per cent increase in seed yield noticed with pinching was 15.38% over control and 7.70% over cycocel spray @ 75 ppm. Among different foliar applications, maximum seed yield ha-1 (25.27 q ha-1) was recorded with foliar spray with micronutrient mixture ZnSO4 0.5% + Boric acid 0.3% followed by foliar spray with NAA 40 ppm (23.35 q ha-1). Among the interaction effects, spray of cycocel @ 75 ppm + foliar application of micronutrient mixture ZnSO4 0.5% + Boric acid 0.3% recorded maximum seed yield (27.98 q ha-1) and it was significantly different from other foliar sprays involving the same main treatment i.e. foliar spray with DAP 2% (24.19 q-1), foliar spray with DAP 2% + micronutrient mixture (Zn + B) + NAA (18.72 q ha-1) and control (20.89 q-1).

Keywords: Evaluation, Yield, Buds, Micronutrient.
