Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the possible effect of Calcium and some micro nutrients with different concentration levels as a foliar application on the quality attributes of tomato cv ‘Arka Rakshak’. The experiment was carried out under randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replicates. The important parameters encompassed in the study were shelf life (days), T.S.S (%), acidity (%), reducing sugar (%), non-reducing (%), total sugar (%) and ascorbic acid content (mg). The data clearly showed that the treatment (T5) exhibited more shelf life (16.63 days), maximum T.S.S (5.25%), acidity (0.42%), reducing (1.68%), non-reducing (2.00%), total sugar (3.63%) and ascorbic acid content (19.94 mg).
