The experiment was carried out at KVK,Chittorgarh, Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur, Rajasthan during the year 2016-17. The experiment consisted of 9 treatments comprising T1 - (water spray), T2 - (0.5% Manganese sulphate), T3 - (1.0% Manganese sulphate), T4 - (0.5% Ferrous sulphate), T5 - (1.0 % Ferrous sulphate), T6 - (0.5 % MnSO4 + 0.5 % FeSO4), T7 - (0.5 % MnSO4 + 1.0 % FeSO4), T8 - (1.0 % MnSO4 + 0.5 % FeSO4), T9- (1.0 % MnSO4 + 1.0 % FeSO4) applied at fruit set and pea size stage of fruit through foliar spray. Among the treatments, treatment T8 (1.0 % MnSO4 + 0.5 % FeSO4) was best for higher yield and produced best quality fruits. As far as relative economics of treatments is concerned highest B:C (4.68) was obtained in T8 (1.0 % MnSO4 + 0.5 % FeSO4) and this treatment gave the highest net returns (Rs. 348114 ha-1) with maximum yield/ ha.
