Abstract:
The influence of foliar application of secondary and micronutrients on potato was investigated to determine its growth and yield. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 16 treatments replicated thrice. All the growth and yield parameters were improved significantly. The highest numerical value of plant height 23.55, 28.43 and 33.89cm at 45, 60, and 75 DAP respectively. Total number of tubers (4.84) per plant, Total tuber yield per plant (233.53g), yield per plot (14.07kg), yield per hectare (22.52t/ha) recorded with the sole application treatments of foliar application of Magnesium (Mg). The highest numerical value of plant height 25.87, 31.33 and 36.71cm, at 45, 60, 75 DAP, Total number of tubers (8.18) per plant, Total tuber yield per plant (346.80g), total tuber yield plot (23.04kg), total tuber yield hectare (36.87t/ha) was recorded with the foliar application of Magnesium (Mg), sulphur (S), zinc (Zn) and boron (B).
