Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the winter season of the year 2012-13 to assess the efficacy of various levels of boron and molybdenum on growth, yield and quality of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L. var. botrytis). The treatments comprised with foliar application of boron @ 100 ppm and molybdenum @ 50 ppm alone and in combination and two levels of borax @ 10 and 20 kg/ha and sodium molybdate @ 1 and 2 kg/ha alone and in combination. The control treatment (NPK @ 120: 60: 60 kg/ha) was also laid out. There were quadratic responses of curd yield, plant weight and plant boron uptake to the applied boron; quadratic response of plant molybdenum uptake to the applied molybdate, while the responses of curd yield, and plant weight to the applied molybdenum were linear. Highly significant positive correlations between curd yield and leaf boron content as well as curd yield and plant molybdenum content were observed. In conclusion, among the various treatments, the combined application of borax 20 kg/ha and sodium molybdate 2 kg/ha as soil application in combination of recommended dose of NPK @ 120: 60:60 kg/ha (T12) gave the maximum height of the plant, length of leaf, width of leaf, total weight of plant, width of curd, average weight of curd and curd yield.
