Ber, Fruit Drop, Fruit Quality, Plant Growth Regulators, Nutrients


The effect of foliar spray of plant growth regulators and nutrients on fruit drop, fruit size and quality was studied in ber cv Sanuar-2 at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Hoshiarpur, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, during 2005-2006. Plants were sprayed with NAA (20, 30 or 40 ppm), KNO3 (0.5, 1.0 or 1.5%) and ZnSO43333</sub (1.5%).
