The experiment was conducted to study the effect of different levels of pruning and foliar feeding of nutrients on growth, sugar content and yield of Phalsa (Grewia subinaequalis D.C.). The pruning level at 25 cm above ground level had significantly maximum shoot length (210.25 cm) and number of leaves per shoot (85.27). While, number of shoots per plant (30.60) was recorded highest with pruning at 50cm above ground level. Moreover, reducing sugars (12.95 %), total sugar contents (16.50 %) and fruit yield per hectare (62.39 q/ha) were recorded high with pruning at 50 cm above ground level. Regardless of severity of pruning, application of ZnSO4 (0.4%) showed significantly maximum shoot length (213.83 cm), number of shoots per plant (32.22), and fruit yield per ha (63.26 q/ha). While, number of leaves per shoot (90.44) was noted maximum with foliar spray of urea (2.0 %). All quality parameters viz., reducing sugars (13.43), total sugar contents (17.12) were better with ZnSO4 (0.4%). The interaction effect of pruning levels and chemicals spray on total sugar contents and fruit yield per ha was found significant and the maximum total sugar contents (17.53) and fruit yield per ha (66.55 q/ha) were recorded with spray of ZnSO4 (0.4%) along with pruning at 50 cm above ground level.
