Abstract:
A field experiment entitled “Response of Salicylic acid and Triacontanol on Growth, Yield and Quality of Ber (Ziziphus mauritiana Lamk) cv. Gola” conducted during 2020-21 at instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Ummedganj (Agricultural University, Kota). It consisted of 16 treatment combinations with four levels of salicylic acid (control, SA @ 100, 150 and 200 ppm) and four levels of triacontanol (control, TRIA @ 5.0, 7.5 and 10.0 ppm) and replicated thrice in Factorial Randomized Block Design. The application of salicylic acid @ 150 ppm among the different concentrations proved significantly superior over rest of the treatments in respect to growth parameters viz. tree spread E-W (6.35 m) and N-S (6.10 m), canopy volume (2.99 m3), shoot length at 30, 60 and 90 DAS (108.93, 117.83 and 120.66 cm), shoot diameter at 30, 60 and 90 DAS (6.09, 7.72 and 8.46 mm), per cent growth (12.56%), minimum days taken to flower initiation (12.01) and per cent fruit set (11.38%), maximum fruit retention per cent (54.55%) and minimum fruit drop per cent (38.95%) while, duration of flowering and days taken to maturity were found non-significant. This treatment also gives maximum fruit weight (27.58 g), yield plant-1 (13.62 kg) and yield ha-1 (3787 kg).
