Abstract:

The present study was conducted in the Division of Plant Physiology, Sher-e- Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu to evaluate the effect of zinc and boron fortification on yield and quality in chickpea variety GNG-1958. Foliar application of boron and zinc were applied at different concentration with treatment T1-Control, T2-Zn (0.5%), T3 - Zn (1.5%), T4-B (0.5%), T5-B (1.0%), T6-Zn (0.5%) B (0.5%), T7-Zn (0.5%) B (1%), T8-Zn (1%) B (0.5%), T9-Zn (1%) B (1%), T10-Zn (1.5%) B (0.5%) and T11-Zn (1.5%) B (1%). Maximum plant height was recorded in T6 (32.33 cm) in comparison to control (22.80 cm). Highest chlorophyll content was observed in T6 (2.56 mg/g) and lowest was found in control (1.18 mg/g). Maximum grain zinc and boron content were recorded in T6 (43.63 mg/Kg), (40.55 mg/Kg) and minimum were observed in control (39.42 mg/Kg) and (35.99 mg/Kg) respectively. The highest harvest index was found in T6 (33.11%) and lowest in control (30.01%). Foliar application of Zn (0.5%) + B (0.5%) combination were found best for quantitative yield and quality production of chickpea crop.
