The study was conducted at Niche Area of Excellence Farm, SKRAU, Bikaner (Rajasthan), during the year 2017-18 and 2018-19. Foliar application of plant growth regulators viz. NAA (0, 20 & 40 ppm), GA3 (0, 20 & 40 ppm), BAP (0, 10, 20 ppm) were applied 6 years old ber trees. The results revealed that treatment NAA 20 ppm significantly minimize the days taken for initiation of flowering, days taken for 50% blooming and days taken for full bloom, and harvesting. NAA 20 ppm increased fruit set, fruit retention, least fruit drop, in both the years as well as in polled analysis as compare to control. Similarly, application of GA3 20 ppm increased fruit set, fruit retention and least fruit drop, during both the years and pooled mean as compared to control.

Keywords: NAA, GA, BAP, fruit retention, fruit drop
