The plant growth parameters like plant height, canopy spread and canopy volume were maximum in plants that were applied with 70% ER + ZEBA @ 5 kg/acre (45 g/plant). Fruit parameters like fruit weight (220.33 g), fruit length (6.65 cm), rind thickness (4.79 mm), fruit yield per tree (66.63 kg) and number of fruits (428.66) were also maximum in fruits from the trees which were applied with 70% ER + ZEBA @ 7.5 kg/acre (70 g/plant). Highest juice percent (61.28%) lowest fruit drop percent (1.06%) and highest fruit yield (18.31 t/ha) were recorded in 70% ER + Pusa gel @ 2 kg/acre (20 g/plant).
