Aonla (Emblica officinalis Gaertn.) is an important crop indigenous to Indian subcontinent which is used in alternative medicine, health foods and herbal products. Plant growth regulators and micro nutrients play a vital role in growth, development, fruit retention and quality reported in many fruit crops. A field experiment was undertaken on Aonla (Emblica officinalis Gaertn.) at Horticultural Research cum Demonstration Farm, Department of Horticulture, B.A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand in order to evaluate the performance of plant growth regulators (Gibberellic acid and Naphthalene acetic acid), micro nutrient (boron) alone and their combinations applied as foliar spray at pin head and pea stage for improvement of aonla fruit quality. The significant differences were observed for total soluble solids, total soluble sugars and ascorbic acids among all the treatments. The shelflife also increased and found to be significant among all the treatments. Whereas, the internal fruit necrosis, fibre, tannin and acidity content was significantly decreased in treated samples as compared to the control. Hence, these treatments could be useful to improved nutritional quality and storage life of aonla fruit.
