Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out at the Research Farm Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Science, Prayagraj during the year 2020-2021 to find out the effect of different micronutrient on plant growth and bunch yield and fruit quality of banana (Musa paradisiaca) cv. Udhayam (ABB group). The field experiment was set up in RBD with 13 treatments and three replications. The levels of Micronutrients play a major role in crop production due to their essentiality in plant metabolism and adverse effects that manifest due to their deficiency. From the present investigation it is concluded that the soil application of different micronutrient is best suited and beneficial for the growth, yield and quality of banana. Soil application of inT11 25 Kg ZnSo4 + 25 Kg FeSo4 + 10 Kg Borex + 10 Kg CuSo4 ha-1 was found best in respect of growth, yield and fruit quality parameter of Banana (Musa spp.) cv. Udhayam (ABB) group. The results of the investigation are found significantly increased with the higher plant height (407.57cm), plant girth (91.78cm), number of leaves per plant (14.57), bunch weight (37.32kg), number of hands per bunch (14.79), no. of fingers hand-1 (25.69), total no. of finger bunch-1 (318.00), total no. of finger bunch-1 (15.66), average fruit width(12.46cm), average fruit weight (86.51g), total soluble solids (16.76tss 0brix), titrable acidity (0.15%) and ascorbic acid (7.16) of Banana (Musa spp.) cv. Udhayam (ABB) group.
