A review on combined effect of foliar spray of mineral nutrients and plant bio-regulators on quantitative and qualitative traits of fruit crops


Muddana Manasa, Anis A Mirza

Because of intensive cultivation and high yielding varieties, as well as poor nutrient management, the soil fertility status has been disrupted, affecting the yield and quality of fruits. Plant metabolic activities necessitate the consumption of both micronutrients and macronutrients. Nutrients are now mainly applied in the form of foliar spray because plants absorb nutrients more easily than soil application and deficiencies can be corrected easily. Plant bio-regulators or phytohormones are naturally synthesized in the various plant parts in minute concentration. Several studies have been conducted in fruit crops with different growth regulators such as auxins like NAA, 2,4-D, IBA and gibberellins, ethrel, Salicylic acid, brassinosteroids, cycocel to see if they had an impact on flower and fruit drop, fruit set, fruit retention, fruit size, and other quality parameters. Combined effect of mineral nutrients and bio-regulators has been studied to improve fruit production and quality parameters such as TSS, acidity, vitamin C, reducing and non-reducing sugars, and so on.
