Title : Response of salicylic acid and triacontanol on quality of ber (Ziziphus mauritiana Lamk) cv. Gola

Abstract :

A field experiment entitled “Response of Salicylic acid and Triacontanol on 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 quality parameters viz- maximum chlorophyll content in leaves (3.86 mg/g), nitrogen content (1.84%), phosphorus content (0.33%), potassium content (1.57%), TSS (18.48O Brix), minimum acidity (0.389%), maximum TSS:Acidity ratio (47.90), highest ascorbic acid content (102.28 mg/100g), reducing sugar (5.11%), non-reducing sugar (4.36%) and maximum total sugar (9.70%) and at par with the treatment T3 (10.0 ppm triacontanol) and found lowest in the control.
