Abstract: The present experiment was conducted to determine “Effect of Pruning and different micronutrient on Plant Growth, Fruit yield and quality of Phalsa (Grewia asiatica L.) c.v Sharbati” under Allahabad agro-climatic conditions in the Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Science, Allahabad, (U.P.) during the year 2016-2017. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (R.B.D) with three replications and used different concentrations of Micro-nutrients [Zinc (ZnSO4) (0.1%, 0.2%), Boron (Bo) (0.1%, 0.2%) and Cu (CuSO4) (0.1%, 0.2%)] with 15 different treatments. The result reveals that was effective in improving pre and post-harvest parameters of Phalsa. Treatments influenced significantly No of canes bush-1(15.46), Days of sprouting of shoots (38.59), Number of sprouted shoots cane-1 (25.32), Number of leaves shoots-1(28.19), Length of shoots cane-1 (79.08cm) and Number of fruiting nodes shoots-1 (25.11). The data revealed that T14-0.2% Boron + 0.1% Zinc Sulphate + 0.2% Copper significantly influenced the different post-harvest attributes in phalsa viz., Number of fruit bush-1(25.11), Fresh weight of 10 fruits(9.17), Yield bush-1 (4.16kg) and Yield hectare-1 (68.86q/ha). Similarly, maximum 0.2% Boron + 0.1% Zinc Sulphate + 0.2% Copper and minimum was recorded with T0-control.
