EFFICACY OF CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS AND FOLIAR APPLICATION OF NAA ON GROWTH CHARACTERS AND YIELD ATTRIBUTES OF SUMMER BRINJAL (SOLANUM MELONGENA L.)Rohatash Singh Bhadouria , B.K. Singh, Aish Kumar and K. N. Nagaich
A research experiment was conducted two consecutive zaid (summer) seasons of 2012 and 2013 at the horticulture nursery, College of agriculture, Gwalior (M.P.), India with five fertilizers doses and three concentration of NAA on summer brinjal (cv JB-64) in factorial randomized block design. In general, the value of all growth and yield contributing characters increasing significantly with increasing doses of fertilizers and higher value under 125% of RDF. Twice foliar spray of NAA @100 ppm before flowering (30 and 50 DAP) showing earliness the flowering and recorded higher number of fruits per plant and finally produced maximum fruit yield. The highest fruit yield (352.56 q/ha) was obtained with the application of 125% RDF and 100 ppm foliar spray of NAA at 30 and 50 DAP stages. The second best combination was formed of 125% RDF with 50 ppm NAA where the fruit yield was 339.07 q/ha.
