Effect of potassium, zinc, boron and molybdenum on the physicochemical composition of guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. Allahabad Safeda



Effect of potassium, zinc, boron and molybdenum on the physicochemical composition of guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. Allahabad Safeda



Orissa Journal of Horticulture 27(2): 62-65



An experiment was conducted to assess the physicochemical quality of guava fruits under the influence of 3 rates of potassium and 2 rates each of zinc, boron and molybdenum. The size of fruits increased greatly when borax and potassium chloride were sprayed. Fruit quality as evident by TSS and sugar content was enhanced markedly by the application of boron and zinc. The effect of molybdenum was less prominent.
