Abstract:
The present investigation on Guava (<em>Psidium guajava</em> L.) cv. G-27 was conducted during the year 2013-14 and 2014-15. Foliar spray of zinc,<strong> </strong>boron and magnesium was done as Zn<sub>1 </sub>= Zinc sulphat @ 0.25%; Zn<sub>2</sub> = Zinc sulphat @ 0.50%; Zn<sub>3 </sub>= Zinc sulphat @ 0.75%; Bo<sub>1 </sub>= Boric acid @ 0.1%; Bo<sub>2 </sub>= Boric acid @ 0.2%; Bo<sub>3 </sub>= Boric acid @ 0.3%; Mg<sub>1</sub>= Magnesium sulphat @ 0.20%; Mg<sub>2 </sub>= Magnesium sulphat @ 0.40%; Mg<sub>3 </sub>= Magnesium sulphat @ 0.60%. The result showed that Zn<sub>3</sub> recorded On the basis of results obtained in present investigation. It was found that foliar spray of zinc,<strong> </strong>boron and magnesium had significantly improved the various yield attributing parameters of guava. From the different concentration Zn<sub>3, </sub>B<sub>3 </sub>and<sub> </sub>Mg<sub>3 </sub>recorded yield of 75.04 kg plant<sup>-1</sup>, 71.94 kg plant<sup>-1</sup> and 74.9 kg plant<sup>-1</sup>, respectively against 46.75 kg plant<sup>-1</sup> in control. Diameter of fruit, 7.07 cm, 6.85 cm and 7.07 cm in Zn<sub>3, </sub>B<sub>3 </sub>and<sub> </sub>Mg<sub>3</sub>,<sub> </sub>respectively against 5.83 cm in control and maximum no. of fruit plant<sup>-1 </sup>of 682.05, 648.82 and 681.53 in Zn<sub>3, </sub>B<sub>3 </sub>and<sub> </sub>Mg<sub>3</sub>,<sub> </sub>respectively against 458.48 in control. These results are on pooled basis of 2013-14 and 2014-15.
