Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to know the “Effect of foliar application of nutrients on growth and yield of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)” at department of vegetable science, College of Horticulture, Mudigere during 2017-18. The results revealed that foliar applications of micronutrient mixture @ 5g/lit recorded significantly higher plant height (63.40 cm), number of leaves (189.20), number of stem (5.87), plant spread (52.31 cm), Leaf area index (5.67), fresh weight of leaf (55.07 g), fresh weight of stem (81.69 g), dry weight of leaf (7.93 g), dry weight of stem (14.52 g), dry weight of root (5.76 g), total dry matter production (28.21 g/plant) with respect to growth parameters at 90 days after planting. Yield and quality parameters viz. applications of micronutrient mixture @ 5g/lit recorded significantly maximum yield per plant (249.6 gm), yield per plot (7.49 kg), marketable yield per hectare (18.72 t/ha) and higher quality parameter viz. TSS (6.20 ºbrix), reducing sugar (1.45%), non-reducing sugar (0.96%) and starch (19.00%)as compared to control.
