Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at the central research farm, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Science, Allahabad during (July-December 2017) to study the “Effect of foliar spray of urea and zinc on plant growth, yield and quality of guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv.
