Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out to study the foliar feeding of nutrients on fruit quality and yield of mango (<em>Mangifera indica</em> L.) cv. Amrapali” was conducted at Main Experiment Station, Department of Horticulture, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture &amp; Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad (U.P.) during the year 2016-2017.The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design with seven treatments i.e. Borax 0.2%, Borax 0.4%, ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.2%, ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.4%, Urea 1.0%, Urea 1.5% and control (untreated) in three replications and considering two plants as a unit. The maximum number of fruit yield (43.00 kg/tree), fruit yield (688 q/ha) in the application of ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.4% followed by ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.2%. All the phyico-chemical characters were influenced by foliar spray of Borax 0.2%, Borax @ 0.4%, ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.2%, ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.4%, Urea 1.0%, Urea 1.5% in alone. The fruit pulp weight (166.66), pulp per cent (72.23) were recorded maximum with the foliar application of ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.4% followed by ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.2%. The maximum TSS(19.33), ascorbic acid(31.6), total sugars (17.16) and minimum acidity(0.37) content were observed with the foliar application of ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.4% followed by ZnSO<sub>4</sub> 0.2%.
